My family really liked this dish. I would suggest that the chow mein noodles be added after cooking as they tend to be soggy when reheated (microwave). My 12 year old daughter really loved this dish.

Maybe just personal preferences, but didn't like it enough to ever make again.

Sensational! I made this exactly according to directions, with no adjustments for high altitude, and it came out perfectly. I don't have a covered 2-quart casserole dish, so I used a 2-quart oblong glass dish (slightly smaller than a cake pan) and covered it tightly with aluminum foil. My husband loved it! It makes a large quantity, which is great for families. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I think we'll be enjoying this for years to come. (I'll bet it would be excellent with a few cashews thrown in, too.)

I first had this when I was in school, in Isle, MN, from 6th through 12th,I am 65 by the way, it was one of my favorite hot lunches. When I married I wanted it for my family and by hit and miss I redid the recipe at home and it didn't take too long and I was able to capture it. Brings back some great memories

I found this to be good, but just not something I am excited enough about to make again unless the family requests it... which might happen.

This is a great base recipe! I made some changes to make it a little more 'low cal/low sodium' and it is still great. My family (including picky children) love it. I only use one lb of ground beef, maybe 1/4 onion, half of the listed sauces, and use the 'healthier' options for the soups. Also, this recipe lists nutritional values for 4 servings, but we get 6 servings out of this recipe. I have shared my changes with others, and they loved it too. Thanks for the recipe- this is on our regular rotation for sure.

Tasted better than any other mock chow mein's I have attempted before... Was VERY easy to make, and a hit with the whole family!

Truth be told, I hated this hot dish when I was a kid. It was on the rotational list of dishes most often made by my Mother and it was not my favorite! However, in a nostalgic moment I added it to my grocery list and prepared it for my family. Everyone, less my very picky 6-year old, enjoyed it! It was quick and easy to prepare and satisfied all! Next time I believe I might add some water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and maybe some canned mushrooms and eliminate 1 T. of Worcestershire. Thanks for the flash back to my childhood!

I grew up on this hot dish and was surprised to see it here. We always called it MORE PLEASE and now my husband and kids ask for it by that name too. Just a classic, cheap, easy dish that everyone loves! Oh, and my husband hates celery and still asks for this one!
