Pork Lo Mein is one of my favorite dishes to order at Chinese restaurants. It's a balanced meal with whole grain noodles, rich pork, a ton of vegetables, and a tangy, savory sauce. This version of pork lo mein is extra authentic because it has bamboo shoots, which are crunchy and mild, perfect to balance out the intense flavors of the rest of the ingredients.
