3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
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
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!
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.
