THIS IS my basic recipe for stir-fry. I've tried others but always come back to this one. I have also substituted chicken and chicken broth for the beef and beef broth and found it just as good. -Margery Bryan, Royal City, Washington

"So delicious! My family insists that I make this every week. I used to buy packets of Chow Mein mix but this tastes so much better. We like lots of sauce so I made one slight change; I used 1 cup of beef bouillon instead of 1/3 cup."
