    From the Test Kitchen

    This dish gets its gourmet flair from fresh lo mein noodles, whose delightfully springy texture is perfectly complemented by our sweet and savory sauce and bits of tender beef. A garnish of crunchy cashews tossed with togarashi (a Japanese cuisine-favorite seasoning) finishes the dish.
