Even with some substitutions, this was a wonderful chinese dish. We used spaghetti noodles and regular peas instead of snow peas. Makes great leftovers too!
quick and easy, i made this with leftover pork tenderloin. i added some oyster sauce for flavor and i used lo mein noodles. this was a great side dish as part of an asian dinner
Hmmm. I liked this dish, only I didn't find it overly flavorful, and that was even with reducing the lo mein noodles to 1/2 pound but keeping everything else the same. I only used 1 tsp sesame oil as it is very strong, so perhaps that is where my flavor problem stems from. I will try again, but may add additional garlic or maybe some oyster or fish sauce?
