Pork lo mein

Actually, you can use any type of meat in this recipe.

1-2 tbsp. oil (use canola or peanut oil, because they do well over high heat)
1 lb. meat, sliced (chicken, beef, pork, shrimp..)
Head of broccoli, washed and cut into florets
1/2 green pepper, washed and sliced
3 carrots, peeled and chopped into slices or julienned
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. fresh minced ginger
1/4 C soy sauce
1/4 C chicken or beef broth, or water
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 lb. fettuccine, spaghetti, or angel hair pasta, cooked and drained
  1. Make pasta.
  2. Make sauce: Combine soy sauce and broth/water and heat in microwave 1 minute. Add cornstarch and stir until incorporated.
  3. Stir fry: Heat frying pan or wok over high heat. Add 1-2 tbsp. oil. Add garlic and ginger; stir very quickly until you can smell the garlic, about 30 seconds.
  4. Immediately add meat. Stir quickly until the meat looks cooked on the outside, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add vegetables and stir quickly until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.
  6. Add sauce and stir meat and vegetables around until well-incorporated. Add pasta and stir until combined. Enjoy!

I just bought a huge wok and stir fry cookbook from world market this weekend, I can't wait to try out my wok... your recipe looks much easier though ;)
Yeah, I have a book of Chinese stir fry recipes and many of the recipes contain strange ingredients that I just don't have room for in my condiment-filled fridge.
