*I add the peanut oil into the sauce because it gives the sauce a similar consistency as takeout lo mein, but it’s not necessary!
*Fresh Chinese egg noodles (I found mine in the freezer section at Wegmans) are amazing in this and the closest you’ll get to the takeout version of lo mein, but if you can’t find them dried works just fine! I have used many different varieties and I love them all.
*I like crispy tofu in my lo mein, but anything will work here! Chicken, pork, beef, or shrimp would all be fantastic. Just cut whatever you chose into bite-sized pieces and season well with salt and pepper before sautéing.
