Meatless, Vegetables

Instant Pot Lo Mein

I love a good lo mein …. my kids on the other hand, do not. I thought this would be one of the those recipes my kids would love, but they complained all through dinner about how gross it was, it was chewy and disgusting. My daughter even forbid me to never make this recipe again. My husband and I thought it was really good and was packed full of flavor. I might try it again and switch out the sesame oil and see if my kids like it then…..thought I’m not sure I want to hear the complaining again if they don’t. Ha!

This recipe can easily be switched out to include whatever veggies you have on hand. I made it a meatless dish, but a piece of grilled chicken, steak or shrimp would be a great addition.
