Low-Fat Beef Lo Mein in Under 35 Minutes


This recipe is as good as it looks. I developed it for Lauras Lean beef, and I recently made it for television for an Asian-themed cooking show. It is so colorful, easy and a wonderful one-dish meal. Feel free to substitute chicken, shrimp or tofu for the beef if you wish.
