Reviews – Chinese Lo Mein With Peanut Butter Sauce Recipes
This is really versatile as other reviewers said. I followed the recipe exactly as written, my only sub was brown rice spaghetti instead of wheat (which is why my photo might look a little different). I have never cooked onion that way, it actually works really well in this. I liked the sauce but think I’d sub fresh ginger & garlic next time, they were difficult to detect over the peanut butter. Either that or I’d cut down the peanut butter a bit. At first I only used 2 tbsp of soy and the sauce tasted plenty salty enough – but once everything was put together I found I needed to add that 3rd tbsp in. Thanks very much!
5 stars for simplicity even if I did change it up a bit. I did mine more stir-fry style & added some mushrooms and capsicum with the onion & carrots. I also added some chopped chicken I had to use and hokkien noodles in lieu spaghetti. Beacuse of all the extra ingredients I doubled the sauce but added some extra water to thin it out a bit. This is a great simple dish to put together and easily adaptable to what you have on hand. Thanks for posting!
This was good, and very easy to make. I left out the carrot and onion and I’d give the recipe a 4.5 but I rounded it up to 5 because I’m sure it would have been 5 stars if I included the carrot and onion. I think next time I’ll also add chicken and maybe some chopped peanuts.
Very good! Easy & fast too. I changed just a couple things..I added some shredded cabbage and waterchestnuts. I sauteed those along with the carrots and onions rather than cooking them with the pasta. When the pasta was done, I threw the veggies and the sauce into the drained pasta and mixed. I love how versatile this is. Great side dish, but could be a great main dish too with the addition of some chicken or shrimp. Will definitely make again. Thanks!
Easy and yummy peanut butter noodle dish! I halved the recipe for lunch today and used a small home grown leek instead of the onion (I added the leek just before removing so it didn’t overcook). I might use a little less water next time as I thought the sauce was too runny. In any event, it was very tasty and I’d make again! Made for Use Your Noodle.
