I wanted a quick cook and I have an egg noodle pack from our Christmas basket. So I needed a dish to use with it… and tada, Lo Mien! It’s a quick stir fry but it took a little bit of time for me to prep.
I had a hard time cooking the noodles using the package instructions. I don’t know if it’s my oven not heating up or something. Nevertheless, finally able to cook it after quite awhile. So not a quick cook for me but I’m sure it’ll be quick from your side. The original recipe asked for white mushroom, I substituted it with Shitake and it still tasted nice.

- 1 Piece red bell pepper julienned
