My kids are addicted to Chinese Shrimp Lo Mein. They love it and would literally eat it every single night if I let them.
Unfortunately they also eat a lot and we would be homeless if I indulged their love of Lo Mein as often as they would like.
So I had to find a way to make it at home. I tried probably 10 different recipes and finally created this one with bits and pieces of all of them. It’s a winner! My kids love it!
They even ate the vegetables with no complaints.
Instant Pot Shrimp Lo Mein Recipe

- 2 cups beef broth
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 3 Tbsp soy sauce
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 box Lo Mein noodles
- 2 cans sliced mushrooms
- 1 cup shredded carrots
- 1 cup snow peas
- 1 can water chestnuts
- 1 can baby corn
- Combine sesame oil, minced garlic, vinegar, beef broth, lemon juice, soy sauce, and brown sugar in Instant Pot.
- Add shrimp.
- Layer noodles over top.
- Add mushrooms, carrots, snow peas, water chestnuts, and baby corn.

It really tastes just like Chinese Lo Mein take out. I’m going to try it with chicken next time and see if the kids love that as much as the shrimp. This is definitely a recipe that’s on my regular menu plan now!
