Pressure Cooker Vegetable Lo Mein


  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ½ cup diced yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup julienned carrots
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 1½ cup vegetable stock
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 8 ounces lo mein noodles
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker set to Sauté on Normal. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil until softened, about 5 minutes; add carrots, peas, vegetable stock, soy sauce, and rice wine vinegar. Press noodles into the mixture to assure they are covered in liquid.
  2. Lock pressure cooker lid in place. Set steam vent to Sealing.
  3. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 5 minutes on High pressure.
  4. Set steam vent to Venting to quick-release pressure.
  5. Divide lo mein between 2 plates; season with salt and pepper to serve.
Mealthy tip:

Save a little bit of prep time and effort by using your spiralizer. Spiralize your carrots and then cut into matchstick-sized pieces and have them ready in mere minutes.

Great sauce! I love a stir-fry, though not necessarily the mess I make with my wok. Plus, I always struggle to get the right flavor with the sauce. The soy and the vinegar work great in this. I added strips of bell pepper because I just love them in these dishes. Was surprised to still have texture after pressure cooking, but I did.

I could not find "lo mien noodles" so I used hokkien rice noodles and got great results. I also added a little sesame oil with green onions and mushroom for topping. This is my new go-to for Asian stir fry.

This is a delicious, simple lo mien recipe. I added more veggies like cabbage and broccoli, and it was really good. The cooking time was short and it didn't take long to pressurize either.

This is one of my pressure cooker faves. Perfect go to meal for meatless Mondays. I added baby corn and broccoli florets to enhance the mix of vegetables.

I could have used extra sauce on this dish. It's really good though, I added orange chicken to it. That recipe is also on this website. Oh, and I used spiralized carrots! Love it.

Easy recipe. I would add 2 cups of vegetable broth because it was a little dry but very tasty. You could add chicken or shrimp to jazz it up.

The noodles quickly turned to mush and the peas were a weird addition to the traditional lo mein. I don't think I'll make this recipe again.
