  • 4 oz Chinese roast pork
  • 8 oz Chinese lo mein noodles uncooked
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup sliced bok choy
  • 2 tbs julienne carrots
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 3 tbs oil
  • 2 scallions sliced for garnish.


  • 2 tbs dark soy sauce
  • 2 tbs regular soy sauce
  • 1 tbs Chinese wine or dry sherry
  • 4 tbs cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper

Chinese Roast Pork:

  • 2 lbs boneless pork loin


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Chinese wine or dry sherry
  • 2 tbs hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 tsp red food coloring Optional
  • pinch Chinese five-spice powder


  • To make roast pork: mix all marinade ingredients. Poke a few holes in the pork with a fork. Place the pork in a zipper freezer bag and pour in marinade. Squish the bag a bit to coat the roast. Place in the refrigerator and marinate at least 2 hours but overnight is better.
  • Spray a small pan with non-stick spray and preheat oven to 375F/190C. Roast meat for 1 hour or until internal temperature is 145F/63C. Let rest for 10 minutes then slice 4 oz/113 g of the roast into strips about 1/4-inch/0.64 cm wide. Set aside.
  • To make lo mein: Mix all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Cook Chinese lo mein noodles per package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large, deep skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until it just begins to get golden; remove and discard. Add the mushrooms and cook until they begin to sear. Add the bok choy and carrots; stir fry for 1 minute.
  • Add the cooked noodles and the sauce. Toss until the noodles are well coated with sauce. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly so the cornstarch cooks.
  • Garnish with sliced scallions.
