Chicken or Combination Lo Mein

Combination Lo Mein

3 tablespoons canola oil [I prefer to use Coconut oil]
1 lb meat of choice, thinly sliced [or combination of meats, the above had 1/2 lb shrimp, 1/3 lb steak, and 1/3 lb chicken]
Ground black pepper to taste
1 thinly sliced large onion, or 5-6 bunches of green onions
1 or 2 tsp sesame oil
4-5 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBSP oyster sauce
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 head napa or regular cabbage [2-3 cups thinly shredded, or *prepackaged coleslaw blend*]
1.5 cups chicken broth [or beef broth if using beef]
1 cup of broccoli florets [not traditional, but I love it]
2 thinly sliced stalks of celery 
1 thinly sliced large carrot 
1 15oz. can bean sprouts, drained *optional*
1/2 box cooked noodles of choice [ I used angel hair because my kids will eat it]
2 TB cornstarch
Steaming hot, fresh Lo Mein
Here's what I did:
Heat water for pasta and cook while veggies are cooking.
In large pot toss all shredded/chopped veggies, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce and broth. Heat all together until cabbage is wilted [about 5 minutes]
Heat 3 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat in small pan. Season the pork, or chicken, or thin strips of beef, with dash of soy sauce and touch of garlic powder, add to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through, about 3-5 minutes (don't overcook or meat will be tough!). Toss in with veggies when no pink is left.

When pasta is done, toss with reserved cooked veggies and meat. Add cornstarch to sauce -wisk or stir in well. Cook a couple of minutes on med-hi to heat through and serve.
