Here we have a copycat recipe for the beef lo mein from P.F. Chang’s China Bistro. Beef lo mein consists of noodles mixed with marinated stir-fried steak and vegetables. The steak is marinated in ingredients such as soy sauce and oyster sauce. The lo mein gets a lot of flavor from sesame oil and is tossed with cabbage and carrots. You can serve this recipe with egg rolls. Enjoy.
