I was looking for a chow mein to use up my leftover grilled pork tenderloin. After I sauteed the veg. I cooked in my pressure cooker (which made my cook time only about 10 min.).. I did use 2 cups liquid (3/4 tsp chicken boullion with water) and the 3 tbs. cornstarch thickened it great. I stirred in some water chesnuts at the end and served over brown rice (topped with crunchy chow mein noodles). This was very rich tasting and comforting! Thanks for posting, Diamondill-
