Great recipe! I didn't have any pork roast, so I diced up some pork chops and stir-fried them instead. I also used green onions instead of regular onions and chicken bouillon mixed in water instead of condensed broth. The sauce is the best part about this recipe - very flavorful. I'm already planning on making this recipe again with some leftover chicken I have!
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-<br/>Roxygirl
