Beef Lo Mein Calories and Nutrition

The nutrition below is based off 2 cups of beef and broccoli lo mein from the above recipe. PF Chang’s version (same serving size) is 960 calories, so we can safely say we cut a lot of calories from this dish.

You could cut more calories by using just 4oz noodles, and doubling the broccoli.

Furthermore, if you are concerned with the sodium amounts, you could cut the soy sauce down to just 1 tablespoon and use it at the end (not adding it to the sauce).
