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 chili 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, etc. This dish is very easy to prepare and is well worth it. Enjoy.
