    Lo Mein FAIL

    Lo Mein FAIL



    So I got some nice lo mein noodles from the asian grocer, was looking forward to making some from scratch. I found a recipe that sounded pretty good-- but man it was NASTY tasting!!!! SOUR

    I had to throw in about 1/2 cup of yoshida's original gormet sauce to try to save it. Still tastes pretty bad though.

    FAIL!!!

    Here was the ingredients, from frugalfeeding, I doubt I will be trying anymore recipes
    Ingredients:

    200g egg noodles
    100g leftover chicken
    3 tbsp dark soy sauce
    2 tbsp sesame oil
    juice of 1 lime
    3 tbsp vegetable oil
    thumb sized piece of ginger, sliced
    1 clove of garlic, sliced
    300g beansprouts
    3 spring onions, roughly sliced
    ½ tsp salt
    1 tsp soft brown sugar

    However my dish LOOKS good, it just tastes awful!!!!

    Interesting! I wonder if it was too much lime juice? Was it supposed to have a sweet and sour flavor to it w/the brown sugar? Well, that's what cooking is all about...trying recipes and having fun and warning others(!!). Some turn out, some don't. On to the next recipe, @bullmama!

    It looks delish!! but, I too have made things that looks great and taste horrid!! At least you tried! We all have flops, I tried to make sausage gravy and it was like glue, my hubby tried to gag it down and I threw mine in the trash! But still don't stop me from trying new things.

    I think I do not like sesame oil or mine was racid. I just did not like the flavor combination at all! It tasted nothing like chow mien or LO mein I've ever had and I've had a lot!

    It was just nasty.

    Hey @Kelly, I bet Joe would eat it!

    He would have thrown some hot sauce on it like everything else, and ate the whole plate!! I know when he really don't like what I have cooked. Although he will eat it, he smother's in his Frank's Red Hot. Or worse yet, Ketchup!! lol @bullmama

    But it looks really delicious but yeah I understand sometimes it looks good but tastes horrible. No worries just try next time to cook better, it's all about trying, trying and trying.
