This homemade Chinese take out dish of lo mein is great for using up your left over pork loin. It can be made with classic lo mein noodles, but we made it with German spaetzle from Aldi’s. We make a number of classically Chinese take out dishes due to my son’s food allergies. It is really risky taking a child who is allergic to nuts, seeds, fish and cucumbers (!?) to a Chinese restaurant. As a result I began making some of my favorite take out dishes at home.
HomeMade Chinese Take out, so good!
This lo mein dish is made even better by using my reserved bacon grease instead of oil to up the flavor and the good greasiness that is lo mein. As part of my weekly food prep I make bacon in the oven and pour the grease leavings into a mason jar and save it for just this type of occasion.
This is not a traditional lo mein sauce, in our house we do not use sesame oil or oyster sauce because of food allergies. This tasty Tuesday edition was a terrific success with my boys and my husband. We had seconds and we enjoyed the leftovers as well. This made an enormous amount of food. Here’s a little peek into our dinner table before everyone sat down and started to dig in.
