Happy Halloween! Whether or not you’re spending tonight celebrating this sweet holiday, you’ll definitely want to make this super-fast recipe for pork lo mein. Earlier this week, I broiled pork tenderloin and reserved half of it to use today (a little strategy goes a long way when it comes to weeknight dinners). Since my protein is already cooked, the rest of the meal is a cinch. Just cook lo mein noodles, stir-fry them with some vegetables, and you’re ready to eat. There’s nothing scary about this meal — it’s simply delicious.
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
“Mise en place” is a French culinary term meaning “to put in place,” and refers to having all ingredients prepped before cooking. It’s an essential step when preparing quick-cooking recipes.
