This is a delicious dinner that is quick to prepare! I adapted this recipe from one I found at recipesworldwide.org. Mainly I omitted the extra salt. It's simple to prepare and the family loves it! Use fresh Chinese chow mein noodles if you can find them. Otherwise, use dried chow mein noodles, Chinese egg noodles, or spaghetti noodles. Vary the vegetables according to what you have on hand or what's in season. Substitute tofu for part (or all) of the beef.
