Start Cooking

Prepare the Lo Mein

  1. Prepare lo mein noodles according to package instructions. When ready, stir sesame oil into the noodles.

Prepare the Stir-Fry

  1. Heat sesame and canola oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Have all veggies prepared and ready.

  2. Add to wok and sauté for 10–15 minutes, until beginning to soften. Two minutes before the end, add the mushrooms and seasoning. Stir together well. Remove from heat.

Prepare the Sauce

  1. Heat together all the ingredients in a small saucepan, mixing until well blended. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Set aside.

Prepare the Meatballs

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celcius). Mix all meatball ingredients together until well combined. Prepare an oven tray lined with parchment paper.

  2. With wet hands, form mixture into mini balls and place on tray. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.

  3. Bake for 10-12 minutes (for regular size meatballs, bake for 15-20 minutes), or until done. Remove from oven and trim fat around the meatballs.

To Serve

  1. Mix lo mein, stir-fry, and most of the sauce together. Top with meatballs, either scattered about or on decorative toothpicks. Drizzle with remaining sauce. Garnish with snipped chives or scallions. Serve hot.

Note:

Stir-fry and meatballs can be made in advance and frozen.

    I liked the concept

    I didn't think the meatballs had that much flavor for a food with that many ingredients. I would try again, but make regular meatballs with sesame teriyaki sauce added to the mixture instead. Also, the sauce was good but not out of this world - I think it could be simplified without affecting the taste. I would leave out the honey, that's annoying to deal with and doesn't add much. Despite that, we ate every piece. I'd give the overall dish a 7/10.
