Simple Pork Lo Mein

Taking simplicity to a new level, this Pork Lo Mein was the result of left-over boneless chops, a box of spaghetti, green onion, cilantro, a can of bean sprouts and Asian sauces from the fridge.

A throw back to our college days, the no-frill's noodle dish tasted more like a homemade ramen noodle than the authentic tasting lo mein we were so craving. Served along side steamed gyoza and a sesame dipping sauce, the meal left us yearning for Mountain Dew and searching for our books from ECON 101!

Proof a dinner doesn't have to be spectacular to be enjoyable, this "Pork Lo Mein" had us reminiscing over college all night long... and put an unexpected twist on an otherwise mundane 'back to the grind' Monday!

Do you have a great LO MEIN recipe you'd like to share? I'm dying to hear it!

Even better the next day? That's what I like to hear! I'm trying to get my husband to stop eating OUT at work! This would be a great meal for him.
