Beef Chow Mein

This beef chow mein is so yummy and another great way to get so many vegetables into one meal.  The sauce really just makes everything so tasty.  So much better for you than takeout!

I normally make this dish with chicken, but just happen to have some beef in the fridge, but it is delicious with any meat or without meat for a vegetarian option.

You can leave out the crispy noodles if you wish and just serve with normal chow mein noodles or even rice.
