There are times that I absolutely crave Chinese food. (Like yesterday for lunch.)

For years, I’d just have to let my cravings subside since we live so far out in the country. Then, delivery happened upon my area and you’d have thought I hit the lottery. After a while and plenty of experiments, I finally realized that I could make so many of my favorite dishes at home and love them even more!

Like this lo mein recipe.

Whenever I have Chinese, there is always an order of lo mein to go with it if I’m around. There is just something so comforting about those noodles and vegetables that I just love.

  1. This looks really good!

  2. This sounds really good and will have to try it. I live in an area where I can’t get delivery and buying it to bring it home gets expensive.

  3. Robyn,
    I really enjoy your website and recipes. I baked your pumpkin pie recipe during Christmas and it was delicious. We loved it, especially my husband! I just saw the Lo Mein recipe and can’t wait to try it. We love Lo Mein, and your recipe looks so good. I’m rating this 5 stars because I know it will be great!

    Thanks for all the delicious recipes!

    • Oh my goodness, Fran! Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I am so glad that you all enjoyed the pumpkin pie and sure hope you enjoy this just as much! xo

  4. Ok, this does look easy. I’ve been kinda intimidated making Chinese food after my last recipe fail, but this looks simple enough. Pinning!

  5. I, too, from time to time crave chow main but it has too much fat in it; however, your lo main recipe looks delicious to eat.

  6. This dish is looking too good, tempted to try. Will surely be a hit in my house as we all love noodles specially my daughter.

  7. Yummy!! I can imagine how good this tastes. Love the recipe. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  8. Robyn,
    My hubby loves lo mein. I’ll have to make this for him soon. Pinned.

  9. I am going to try this, and I will add pieces of leftover chicken to add a little more protein. I wonder how red pepper flakes would taste….

  10. Oh!Robyn thanks For nice dish & hope it will be delicious. My child fond of noodles.I’ll make this recipe soon for my baby.

  11. Yum! This is one of my favorite comfort foods!

  12. I plan on trying to make this lo mein soon. I don’t have the Sriracha sauce. Should I make sure I do buy this sauce, rather than leave it out? I will probably add shrimp to it, because we usually order shrimp lo mein. Thanks, it looks awesome.

  13. I made this for lunch today, and my family loved it! I like how versatile it is- you can use whatever veggies and cooked meat you have on hand. I used thin spaghetti noodles and sprinkled the servings with chopped cashew nuts. Yum! Many thanks!

  14. Made this tonight. I added chicken and some extra veggies. A little spicier than I was expecting but still delicious!!

  15. I am eating this as I write. I really like it and would definitely make it again. I did not have pea pods so I used asparagus and a handful of spinach. I also used ramen noodles as I had them. Definitely use whatever veggies you have on hand. Great, fast recipe!

  16. I too want Chinese food from time to time! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! I would definitely try it myself.

  17. I have to say … I’ve made this twice within the last 2weeks and my family loves it. I used frozen stir fried veggies and brown sugar (don’t have honey) and man they gobbled it up. Going to have to make a double batch next time. Thank you for this great recipe.
