We loved this. I added zucchini and red peppers. I thought the Chinese style noodles were too expensive so I substituted thin spaghetti noodles. I also let the pork marinate for several hours in the 5 spice and ginger. Next time I will double the recipe so he have left overs and I would add more veggies.
Five-Spice Pork Lo Mein
Chinese five-spice powder is a common spice blend that can be found in most supermarkets. Its five assertive components are cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns. Cutting the cooked noodles makes them easier to combine with the other ingredients and serve.
