Chow mein

Now, THIS is the first thing I ever learned to cook and was my favorite meal my mom made when I was younger.

*1 pound boneless pork chops or pork tenderloin

*soy sauce, to taste

*1 can beef broth

*1 onion, chopped

*a couple cloves garlic, minced

*1 can bean sprouts, drained

*2 packages cremini mushrooms, sliced

*1 can water chestnuts, drained

*1/2 can bamboo shoots (optional)

*corn starch, for thickening

*olive oil (1-2 tsp)

*five spice powder, to taste

*salt and pepper

Heat oil in pan. Add onion and cook until soft. Add garlic and cook another 30 seconds. Season pork with salt, pepper and a little five spice powder.

Add pork and begin browning. When almost brown, cover with soy sauce and stir fry for a minute or two. Add mushrooms, as well as a bit more soy sauce, and cook until mushrooms are brown. Season with some five spice powder.

Add can of beef broth -bring to boil, and then simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add vegetables – bring back to a boil and cook veggies through. Thicken sauce with corn starch. Serve over chow mein noodles and/or rice.
