    Debbwl's Note:

    Every year during tomato season my father would drive us to San Francisco's China Town just to get a plate of Tomato Beef Chow Mein. It was only available during the peek of tomato season. This really is does need good tasting tomatoes.

      Mix sauce ingredients and set aside.
    3. 3
      Cook mein noodles in boiling water for 1-3 minutes. They cook fast. Rinse well with cold water and drain. Toss with 1 tablespoon oil so noodles won't stick together. Heat large nonstick skillet, glaze with oil and pan fry 1/4 of the noodles at a time. Put in very low oven to keep warm.

    9. 9

      This was very quick.and easy to make. I just thought it was a bit odd to throw out the marinade when it was so very similar to the sauce. So I didn't. I just added some more soy sauce, cornstarch, and the broth. I also tossed in some bean sprouts. Made for Chinese/Vietnamese New Year tag in the Asian forum.

      Boy this was good and super quick to put together after a day at work. I used turkey breast and chicken stock which was fantastic. I think the nutritional data on the noodles is way out-ours were about 3 g fat a serve so using turkey resulted in a pretty healthy dish. I would like a small hot chilli in there next time but otherwise a perfect 5 star dish for us. Thanks for posting.
