BETTER than carry out! When craving Chinese food we prepare this dish. The secret is in the last step--cooking the noodles until darken. Easy preparation.

Just like take out lo mein! I omitted the bok choy and cabbage because I didn't them on hand but I added broccoli, red pepper, and water chestnuts because I like them and it turned out really good! I also used 3 cups of chicken broth instead of the bouillon cubes. I broke my noodles in half before cooking them which made it much easier to fit in a small amount of liquid. Worth it! :)
