Packed with veggies, slow cooked in a delicious Asian lo mein cooking sauce, this Slow Cooker Pork Lo Mein is a favorite I keep coming back to.

Slow Cooker meals are incredibly convenient, no matter the season.

The pork in this lo mein slow cooks in the lo mein sauce all day on LOW (7-8 hours) or on HIGH (3-4 hours). Then, all you have to do is add the veggies and let them cook on HIGH while preparing the noodles.

About 20-30 minutes later, you have a delicious, filling and healthy dinner!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I sub in beef or chicken for the pork?

Yes! Just treat lean beef as you would the pork tenderloin, or use skinless boneless chicken thighs: they’re less likely than chicken breast to dry out if you opt to cook on low all day.

Can I make this noodle dish gluten free?

Of course, just sub in the noodles or spaghetti with your favorite gluten free version. Also use Tamari instead of the soy sauce, and make sure that the sriracha and oyster sauce you are using are gluten free also.

Equipment

Ingredients 

  • 2 pounds pork shoulder or tenderloin
  • broccoli florets about 1 head
  • 1 cup carrots julienned
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms 1 container
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 4 green onions diagonally sliced
  • 1 pound lo mein noodles or spaghetti cooked

Cooking Sauce

  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger minced or grated
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 2-3 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Instructions

  • Whisk together the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, oyster sauce, sriracha, and sesame oil in the bottom of the slow cooker. Add pork shoulder or tenderloin, cover, and cook on LOW heat for 6-7 hours or HIGH for 3-4 hours.
  • Remove the pork from the slow cooker and shred with two forks. Return meat to the pot and mix with the juices.
  • Stir in broccoli, carrots, snow peas, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cover and cook on HIGH for 30-45 minutes, or until veggies are tender.
  • During the last 10 minutes or cooking, add fresh baby spinach leaves.
  • Cook the pasta according to package instructions and drain. I serve this two ways. Either I add the cooked pasta into the slow cooker and then serve, or I serve the pasta separately and top with the lo mein. It's delicious both ways!
  • Garnish with green onions and Sriracha sauce.

Notes

To make this dish gluten free, sub in the noodles or spaghetti with your favorite gluten free version. Also use Tamari instead of the soy sauce, and make sure that the sriracha and oyster sauce you are using are gluten free also.
