This is Lo Mein ("Stirred Noodles"), not Chow Mein ("Fried Noodles"). To be Chow Mein, you need to fry the noodles first, to make a crunchy layer.
I thought this was pretty good, it got raves from my boyfriend. I tried it as is, then tried it with some sliced water chestnuts as well since I like the crunch from them. Made for ZWT4: Family Picks.
For me I like this dish but my DH thought this was ok. The next time I make this I might try using different herb instead of the chinese 5 spice one.
Ever so yummy, I added cashews and sliced water chestnuts.
