Stir-fried Lo Mein is one of my favorite dishes. Not only does it taste so good but it’s also easy to make at home. There are a lot of different ways to make this dish. Today, I am going to share a super easy stir-fried lo mein recipe using pork and bok choy as main ingredients.
Bok Choy is a kind of leafy greens that commonly used in Chinese Cuisines. It is great for making a variety of dishes such as stir-fried bok choy with mushroom or bok choy congee with ground pork. I like to use it when making Lo Mein to make the dish look more appealing as well as add texture to the dish.
Below is a summary of how I made this dish with pictures.
I hope you enjoy making this easy stir-fried lo mein at home. If you like this recipe, please give a rating and share it with your friends!
