This was very easy and delicious. It satisfied my craving for chow mein. Next time I make it I am going to try 1 cup broth + 1 cup water instead of the two cups broth (just to cut down on the salt). I think it would also be good using chicken and chicken broth. Thanks so much for sharing!! This recipe is a keeper.

This was good. I think it would have been much better with some sort of crunch in there like maybe cashews or something. All in all pretty good.

Whenever my mother roasted a fresh ham, she'd make pork chow mein with the leftovers. It was one of my favorite meals. Ufortunately, she took the recipe to the grave. I tried to duplicate the recipe many times and failed. I had some leftover fresh ham and went looking for a recipe. When I saw yours, I thought it sounded very similar so I gave it a try. When I tasted it, I thought something was missing. I then remember my mother adding leftover gravy. I'm glad I saved my gravy, about a cup. When I added it, took me back 40 years! It was exactly like my mother's. Thanks so much for posting. I made it another time but didn't have homemade gravy. Used canned but didn't taste the same. Now when I roast a fresh ham, I make sure I have enough gravy for this dish. If gravy was listed in the ingredients, I would have rated it 5 stars.

This is so easy! I substituted chicken and chicken broth for the pork and beef broth. I also reduced the soy sauce as to not overpower the milder flavour of the chicken. Also, I prefer things to be less salty then some people might.
