15 Minute Lo Mein


Scale

Ingredients

Sauce:

Lo Mein:

  • 46 ounces uncooked ramen noodles
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 green onions, chopped (separate green parts from white parts – you’ll use both separately)
  • 23 cups julienne cut or chopped vegetables like carrots, red peppers, cabbage, bok choy, mushrooms, or broccoli
  • 12 tablespoons mirin

Instructions

  1. Sauce: Shake all the sauce ingredients together in a jar.
  2. Noodles: Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  3. Lo Mein: Heat the sesame oil in a large wok or skillet. Add the green onions (white parts) and vegetables to the hot pan. Stir fry until fork-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the mirin to loosen the browned bits up off the bottom of the pan. Add the cooked noodles and about half of the sauce – toss around in the hot pan to combine. Add more sauce if needed (I usually gauge the amount of sauce I want by the color of the noodles – you want a medium brown color, not too light, not too dark). Serve topped with remaining green onions!

If you want to add a protein, stir fry it first, before the vegetables, then remove from heat while you cook the vegetables. Add back into the pan at the end with the noodles.
