Turkey Lo Mein

"I substituted turkey for pork in this classic Chinese recipe," reports Leigh Lundy of York, Nebraska. "It was a hit at our church potluck. My husband and two children love it, too."

    This was easy and delicious. I sautéed the turkey and vegetables in toasted sesame oil and also added red bell pepper in step one. Everyone loved it.

    Quick, easy and delicious. Kids gobbled it up. Used coleslaw mix added the carrots and cooked the turkey in a little sesame oil.

    Very good! I made a few variations to the recipe. I used a 16 ounce bag of shredded cabbage, and teriyaki marinade because I had a little left in a bottle to use. I also had ground beef so used that instead. And because I didn't want that many peas I used what I had left of a frozen bag of mixed vegetables. I used oriental flavored ramen. I will make it again!

    Delicious! I skipped the peas; instead, I used some tri-color bell peppers. Used fresh Chinese noodles instead of raman. Passed some Sriracha sauce at the table. It's a keeper!!!

    This recipe was quick and easy. I made a few changes in order to use items I had on hand: instead of 6 cups of shredded cabbage, I used a 16 ounce bag of coleslaw mix. This had shredded carrots in it, but I still used the sliced carrots called for in the recipe. Also, I cooked the ground turkey, carrots, onion and garlic powder in about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. One last thing I added was 2 teaspoons of sesame oil, which I think gives it an authentic Asian flavor .... also, the ramen noodles I used were the oriental flavored. I will surely make this again ... maybe add a can of drained bean sprouts the next time! 5 stars for sure!
