    excellent. used recipie as more of a guideline and used lo mein noodles. i used sesame oil,onion,garlic,cornstarch,beef broth,1/2 the honey,soy sauce,candied ginger, red pepper flakes and broccoli. i was impressed and my husband finished off most of it himself! i will definitly make it again. not like resturant lo mein more like those asian packets for stir-fry, sweet and sour...  -  27 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Try adding crisp fresh snap peas at the end of the cooking time. Wonderful! I used Swansons Vegetable Broth instead of chicken broth and, as others suggested, omitted the honey. Simple steamed broccoli works very well as a side dish. Next time I will add more onion. I suggest that the onion be sliced, rather than chopped, for more visual interest.  -  04 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    i liked this dish alot. the only thing though i minimized the amount of hoisin sauce to a tablespoon and a half and i didn't add honey. i also added about over a pound of shrimp. my dad and husband liked it. overall there were no leftovers so it passed inspection.  -  21 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
