I love Chinese take out, so of course I wanted to learn to make my own. I’ve already made dumplings, which are my favorite, so I decided to make The Russian’s favorite: shrimp and beef Lo Mein. As usual, this is easy for my lazy butt to make and cheap as well. Give it a try!
1 package stir fry beef [$4]
1 small package shrimp [$5]
1 head cabbage [$1]
1 small box mushrooms, sliced [$2]
1 package spaghetti, which I already had on hand, or a package usually runs less than a buck.
garlic (same as spaghetti)
soy sauce, oyster sauce, and Siracha, plus a touch of Hoisin. If buying all the sauces new, they can run about $3 a bottle, but most Asian food enthusiasts such as myself have most of this stuff on hand.
Chicken broth [$1]
