Beef Chow Mein … One Pot, One Bowl 001

I love Chinese food and this recipe for Beef Chow Mein is super easy and really delicious. My kids love it and always come back for seconds. I usually chop all the veggies throughout the day to save time at dinner and then I can create this meal in no time at all. And the best news of all … it can be cooked in a single wok (or pan) and then served in individual bowls … so washing up is a snap! Changs Crunchy Noodles can be found in the Asian food section at most supermarkets.
