Meet the Cook: My family likes chow mein...this is a little like that but not quite as exotic. I've been cooking with a wok for a couple years, ever since I bought one at a rummage sale. My husband's a veterinarian, and our big meal's in the evening when everyone's home (we have four children, ages 9 to 1-1/2).

"This is fantastic. I make this and eat on it all week. Takes a little time to put all together but worth it. Soooo good!"

"This was good. I used pre-shredded carrots rather than pre-cooking regular ones. I tossed these carrots in with the cabbage, etc. According to my recipe nutrition program, the fiber in this recipe is 3.3 grams per serving"

"Excellent recipe if you have leftovers to use up but it does need modified. The steak should be marinated in a soy sauce mixture before cooking because it came off kind of bland. I will also not use the cornstarch and substitute Chinese noodles for the spaghetti."

"How can there be no fiber in this? It is full of vegetables."
