Oodles of Noodles

So today I also want to share my version of lo mein….as usual I used the vegetables I had in the refrigerator and leftover meat.  I had a chicken breast and a grilled steak in the refrigerator so I pulled them out and chopped them up.  Never throw anything out, unless it has gone bad. You can use shrimp or pork as well….there are no rules!


For this dish I used

  1. 1 medium zucchini
  2. 1 medium carrot
  3. 2 yellow summer squash
  4. 1 cup of snow peas
  5. 1 cup of broccoli
  6. 1 cup of green cabbage
  7. 2 tbsp of fresh ginger
  8. 1 tbsp of fresh garlic
  9. 1/2 cup of scallions
  10. 1 large brown egg
  11. 1 chinese sausage (boiled)
  12. 1 chicken breast (roasted or grilled)
  13. 1 chuck eye steak (roasted or grilled)
  14. Seasame oil
  15. Low sodium soy sauce

First thing, put 6 cups of water to boil for your noodles.  Fry 1 large brown egg and chop it up.  Wash and cut your vegetables to bite size pieces.  Saute half of your garlic, ginger and scallions in sesame oil on a medium fire until tender, then add your meats.  Add noodles to boiling water and turn off the heat.  Once the meats are warmed through, add your vegetables.  I like my vegetables with a little crunch so I don’t cook them for very long.  Now using a pair of tongs start adding the cooked noodles from the pot of boiling water directly into the meat and veggies.  Add the remaining garlic, ginger and chopped egg.  Add soy sauce to taste and toss everything together.  Remove from heat and sprinkle the remaining scallions and serve!
