    I have been looking for a good but easy recipe for Lo Mein, and this is IT. I love restaurant Lo Mein but wanted to make it at home, and from now on I will. I added some baby corn and some minced garlic and it was great. Lovely recipe for switching veggies around in. Thanks!  -  03 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe is great. I added some cooked diced chicken breast to it at the end and used celery and baby corn instead of onions. The taste of the sauce and the recipe itself was excellent. I'm going to be making this again and again. Please note that the chow mein noodles in the recipe are hard chow mein noodles. I wrote this along with a bunch of other stuff down on my shopping list and ended up buying soft chow mein noodles, which I ended up using for something else, because it would have been too many soft noodles with the angel hair. It's an great recipe though and I highly recommend it. I'll be using it twice a month.  -  25 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
