Trying to duplicate take-out lo mein

RealMenJulienne | | Jul 29, 2008 01:12 PM

Hello,

Specifically, I am trying to make the brown noodles, soaked in brown sauce, stir-fried with thin-sliced chicken, scallions, and still-crispy onion and carrot slivers, bamboo shoots, sprouts, celery, and napa cabbage. Eaten straight out of the waxed carton, and available at fine strip-mall Chinese restaurants throughout the Midwest.

I have tried to make it at home but I have never gotten that indefinable savory flavor you get from the restaurant. Please help me stop paying $7 per carton for such a seemingly simple dish!
