Chinese lo mein noodles are made with wheat flour. The flat strands are 1/8-inch wide, or sometimes even a bit wider. Linguine and spaghettini can stand in as substitutes, however lo mein is easy to find in the Asian section of most supermarkets.

For the noodles and vegetables

8 ounces Chinese lo mein noodles

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 (16-ounce) bag broccoli cole slaw

1 cup coarsely chopped onion

1 cup sliced cremini mushrooms

For the sauce

3 tablespoons soy sauce

3 tablespoons oyster sauce

1 tablespoon white rice vinegar

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

1 teaspoon dark (Asian) sesame oil

To complete the recipe

8 ounces beef round steak or flank steak, cut into ¼-inch strips

Cook the noodles according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the cole slaw mix, onion, and mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

While the vegetables are cooking, stir together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
