We loved this! I like that it's more veggie heavy than meat. I stirred in some instant rice during the last hour and let it cook that way.

This is my favorite! I dno't add the canned bean sprouts until the last hour or they get mushy though.

This reminds me of a chow mein we used to get from a takeout place near us. I only use pork most of the time when I make it though so I don't have to buy packages of both beef and pork. It can cook longer too without getting overcooked so I can put it in before I go to work and it is fine 9 hours later.
