Beef Lo Mein Recipe

beef_lo_mein_1
There is no better way to bring in the New Year than with another Chinese recipe, Beef Lo Mein. You can find lo mein at many Chinese restaurants and buffets. Lo mein is a Chinese noodle dish that contains vegetables, meat and is tossed with a delicious sauce. This particular version of lo mein is really a combination of lo mein and broccoli and beef. If you don’t like beef, it can easily be replaced with chicken. The amount of heat can be adjusted by the amount of chile paste you put into the recipe. If you don’t like spice, you might want to cut it in half. You can use whatever type of pasta you like for this recipe such as vermicelli, spaghetti, linguini, ect. This dish is very easy to prepare and is well worth it. Enjoy.

    Just tried your recipe but I didn’t think it was very good. Ended up eating the beef and broccoli with rice. A frozen rice bowl from Costco tastes better than this recipe!

    hiro – perhaps you did something wrong? I highly doubt a frozen rice bowl tastes better than this recipe, but your entitled to your opinion. Sorry you didn’t enjoy it.

    The ingredients in this dish make a great beef lo mein. However, being Asian, using any sort of pasta just doesn’t do it justice! If you’re going to make this recipe, please use a proper asian lo mein noodle, you won’t be sorry!

    Thanks for posting! I love the recipes you post.

    I tried this recipe a few days ago and really liked it. I agree that lo mein noodles are the best. I can’t imaging using somehting else. I added mushrooms to mine and left out the chile paste because I couldn’t find any- also don’t like my lo mein too spicy. I used more sesame oil and soy sauce because it was a little bland at first. Overall, it was pretty good!

    What kind of onions are you using here?

  10. Bobby — March 8, 2010 @ 9:27 pm

    TJ – green onions will work.

    OK, I made this last night and once again, it was an incredible recipe. I have no idea why one of the folks here didn’t like it, but I thought it had a fantastic balance of a variety of flavors. I am going to try this with chicken and shrimp as well.

    Once again, it was a fantastic (and authentic tasting) recipe.

    Just made this recipe and L-O-V-E-D loved it! We used random pasta noodles and will be making this recipe again using lo mein. We also used eye round for the beef and that ended up being pretty tough but nonetheless great!

    I want to fix this tonight for company but only have angel hair pasta so I guess I need to go to the market.Those noodles look thick.Hope I don’t mess this up.LOL

    i will try this one next week thanks……

    Bobby,
    I am looking forward to trying your recipe. One question, can I cut this recipe exactly in half (just for myself? Or do I just cut the pasta, meat, broccoli and onion portions in half only. When I cook with sauces, I usually like flavorful tasting sauces almost as much as the main ingredients in any dish I make.
    Thank you in advance for your response.

    Bruce- I would not recommend cutting the sauce in half, just leave it as is. I hope you enjoy the recipe.
