      This was a really good recipe. I was using leftover roast beef that I cut in strips so I changed it from chicken broth to beef. I chopped 3 celery stalks, 1/2 a red pepper and 1/2 white onion. Sauteed it all together then added the broth and cornstarch mixture. Add bean sprouts last as they take no time to heat through and will maintain their crunch. Will make again for sure. Mahalo

      Since we've moved to NC 6 years ago, we've missed our good old MN chow mein. Here we get the large chunks of veggies in a watery type of so-called sauce. Every time we go back to visit our family in MN, good old chow mein is a must for us. I've tried several methods of cooking my own chow mein, but this is it!!! Absolutely delicious. My husband said, "This tastes like real chow mein!" Will make often.
