Made with just soy sauce, sesame oil, a small amount of sugar, spaghetti or ramen noodles, and any desired vegetables or protein, this 15-minute lo mein SO YUMMY!.

  • Affiliate link: Two tablespoons dark soy sauce (replaceable with regular soy sauce if necessary)
  • 1 Tbsp light soy sauce (you can use regular soy sauce in its place if necessary; affiliate link)
  • 3 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 clove of garlic, grated (optional)
  • 46 ounces uncooked ramen noodles (Affiliate link)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Three chopped green onions (separate the green and white sections; you’ll use each separately)
  • 2-3 cups of finely chopped or julienned vegetables, such as broccoli, mushrooms, red peppers, cabbage, bok choy, or carrots
  • 12 tablespoons mirin
  • Sauce: Shake all the sauce ingredients together in a jar.
  • Noodles: Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Lo Mein: In a big wok or skillet, heat the sesame oil. Place the veggies and white parts of the green onions in the heated pan. Stir fry until fork-tender, about 5 minutes. To get the browned bits off the pan’s bottom, add the mirin. Stir together the cooked noodles and approximately half of the sauce in the heated pan. If necessary, add extra sauce (I usually determine how much sauce I want by looking at the color of the noodles; you want a medium brown color that’s neither too light nor too dark). Serve topped with remaining green onions!.

If you would like to include a protein, stir-fry it before adding the vegetables, then take it off the heat while the vegetables are cooking. Return to the pan with the noodles at the very end.

Yes, even if that describes you, ordering takeout or Uber Eats won’t get you this Chow Mein Ramen Noodles on the table faster than it will. – Nagi x.
