Very good dish for simple easy meal. The things I changed were I doubled the sauce and double the amount of pork. I added more cabbage than what it called for and I reduced the amount of noodles to 12 oz which was still a lot. I might try to reduce the amount of noodles even more and add a steamed vegetable to this dish.

It's not a special occasion meal (I hate that phrase on this ranking) but it was delicious! All three of my little picky eaters liked it. Very light flavors yet filling. It is very noodle heavy - which I like - but next time I make it I'll double the pork and its sauce for better balance.

I agree with the other poster who doubled the sauce. IF I make this again, I would definitely double the sauce, as I felt this was a bit dry. I used chicken instead of pork because that is what I had in the house. I gave this two stars because I agree with the description of "has potential".

I used a 9oz package of Chinese wheat noodles but decided to otherwise follow the recipe and quantity of ingredients called for. I thought less noodles was actually better, just the right amount of noodles with pork, cabbage and scallions. DH liked the dish very much even though he doesn't usually like noodle dishes. Since I did not have dark soy and light soy I subbed Kikkoman soy for both. I thought the sauce was a little salty but obviously that's because of the soy sauce I used. Next time I would use more cabbage, maybe 4 cups. Good everyday meal but might serve for guests. Served with asparagus.

I didn't have the oyster sauce and couldn't find the dark soy. You cannot replace those ingredients apparently. I had to wing it with fish sauce, low sodium soy sauce and some sirracha. Really nothing in the recipe that makes it special. Pretty basic. Add some peppers or mushrooms to give it some balance. Meat, cabbage and noodles just don't seem to be enough.

I started out with dry noodles instead of fresh, because I had a bad experience with fresh Asian-style noodles the last time I tried to make a lo mein style dish. Just cooked some spaghetti and used that. I also omitted the pork because I was making this as a side dish. I thought it didn't have enough veggies in it. Next time, I will double the cabbage and make a little more of the sauce: the first night there was plenty of sauce, but the leftovers didn't have enough sauce. Despite all my changes, I really enjoyed this recipe!

These were great! Definitely double the sauce. I also used dried wide noodles.

This was delicious! We used soba wheat noodles, subbed in chicken instead of pork, and added mushrooms to the recipe. I didn't have dark soy so I used all regular soy. We doubled both sauces, and you could probably even triple them if you're going to eat as leftovers. Will definitely make again.
