Asian Beef / Chicken Lo Mein

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JOANNE S.

We love Asian food and this is a speedy variation of a quick and easy Lo Mein. Sometimes I use frozen mixed vegetables for convenience. I use ground beef or thinly sliced chicken breats, which ever I have on hand.

I had a very similar recipe like this about 15 years ago and I misplaced it. I was so happy to find it here; it's a nice one skillet meal for those nights when you don't have much time or energy to get dinner on the table. Even better, the family likes it. Thanks for posting, Jaaynee.
