Simple Lo Mein

INGREDIENTS    Sauce :  3 tablespoons soy sauce  1 teaspoon sesame oil  1 teaspoon sugar   Lo Mein :  4-6 ounces uncooked ramen noodles  1 tablespoon sesame oil  3 green onions, chopped  (separate green parts from white parts - you'll use both separately)   2-3 cups julienne cut or chopped vegetables like carrots, red peppers, green cabbage, bok choy, mushrooms, or broccoli  1-2 tablespoons mirin   INSTRUCTIONS     Sauce :  Shake all the sauce ingredients together in a jar.    Noodles :  Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.    Lo Mein :  Heat the sesame oil in a large wok or skillet. Add the green onions (white parts) and vegetables to the hot pan. Stir fry until fork-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the mirin to loosen the browned bits up off the bottom of the pan. Add the cooked noodles and about half of the sauce - toss around in the hot pan to combine. Add more sauce if needed (I usually gauge the amount of sauce I want by the color of the noodles - you want a medium brown color, not too light, not too dark). Serve topped with remaining green onions!   NOTES   You can use almost any vegetables and/or protein.  Ideas: Red pepper, carrots, spinach, bok choy, mushrooms, snap peas, onions, cabbage, broccoli. // Chicken, shrimp, eggs, beef, pork, tofu.  If you want to add a protein, stir fry it first, before the vegetables, then remove from heat while you cook the vegetables. Add back into the pan at the end with the noodles.
