1.5 cups chicken broth [or beef broth if using beef]
1 cup of broccoli florets [not traditional, but I love it]

|Steaming hot, fresh Lo Mein|
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.
