Recipe By Miranda Barnett, Savory Spice Test Kitchen

A classic companion to Chinese takeout meals, this lightly sauced noodle dish delivers on tender but crunchy vegetables, perfectly chewy noodles, and slightly spicy sauce. Our vegetable lo mein recipe doesn't call for meat, but feel free to top with chicken, beef, or shrimp as desired. Serve as a side or as a main--it's so good that you'll keep coming back for more.

Directions

Step 1: Make sauce

In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, Cantonese BBQ Pork Rub, honey, and sesame oil. Mix well and reserve.

Step 2: Stir-fry vegetables

In a wok or cast iron pan over high heat, heat 2 Tbsp. canola oil until smoking. Add cabbage, mushrooms, and red bell pepper. Cook, stirring regularly, until lightly charred, about 3 min. Add scallions and cook until lightly wilted, about 1 min. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Step 3: Stir-fry noodles

To pan, add remaining 1 Tbsp. canola oil and heat over high heat until smoking. Add cooked lo mein noodles and cook, tossing and stirring, until hot. Add Minced Garlic and reserved vegetables. Cook, tossing, until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Step 4: Sauce and finish

Add reserved sauce. Cook, tossing and stirring, until sauce coats noodles, about 2 min. Serve immediately.
