Chinese Lo Mein Noodles


Lo Mein is a Chinese dish made with egg noodles. It usually contains a mixture of vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, carrots, snow peas, green or red peppers & onions or other vegetables of choice. You can also include a meat of choice to make this a one pot meal such as chicken, beef, pork or shrimp. It also includes a mixture of Chinese sauces cooked and tossed together to make this family favorite that goes over well with everyone. This is also a very kid friendly meal and a versatile dish. 


You can also leave it as a vegetable lo Mein and make a separate meat dish on the side. I sometimes make a vegetable lo mein and do a sweet and sour chicken seperately.

Preparation of Chinese Lo Mein Noodles




*This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclaimer here.


  1. For a basic vegetable Lo Mein, you would pre-cut your vegetables and set aside. Also prepare and measure other ingredients and set aside.
  2. Boil your egg noodles according to package directions in a large pot. Drain and set aside.
  3. The Lo Mein is best stir fried together in a wok or non- stick skillet. Heat your pan on medium-high heat. Add oils, wait a minute or 2 until hot and start adding your vegetables in the order noted in the recipe.
  4. Add sauces and mix. Then add noodles and toss together.
  5. If making with a meat, you would season and pre-cook your meat separately before adding. I have included chicken in my recipe (if you choose to add a meat, this would be an example of the preparation).
