One popular Chinese Noodle variation is the Lo Mein. You might have heard of Chow Mein and wonder if it is related to Lo Mein, the answer is yes.

Lo Mein with Beef and Broccoli Recipe Tips
The best part about Lo Mein with Beef and Broccoli Recipe is how every component of the dish is delicious individually, but when you experience them together, it just gets better. The beef sirloin should just be tender enough to be pulled apart by a fork with ease. The broccoli needs to be beautifully green and still has that slight crunch when you bite into it. An overcooked broccoli may ruin the texture of the whole dish and may spoil your appetite. The noodles to be used can be egg noodles or Chinese Wheat-Flour noodles with just the right thickness. The seasoning and sauces like oyster sauce, sugar, and soy sauce should be measured properly to give the sweet and savory kick to the dish, especially the beef. The sauce should coat everything evenly so that you can taste the greatness of the dish in every bite.
You may come across a lot of modifications to the recipe, like having other vegetables or different cuts of beef in it. The important part is having the two stars of the dish, the Beef, and the Broccoli, embedded in the Chinese noodles and giving you the savory comfort that you deserve.
