Ground Beef Lo Mein

Our home economists modified Penny Auclair's recipe to use up extra cooked ground beef. “I tried this when I was going to school full-time and wanted something quick, foolproof and delicious,” writes the Amesbury, Massachusetts cook. “My family loves it.” TIP: “For a change, use chicken breasts and chicken gravy instead of ground beef and beef gravy,” Penny recommends.

    We thought this was pretty good! I did add extra soy sauce and will probably add a little ginger next time. Not sure I'd really call it Lo Mein, but it hit the spot for dinner last night!

    I served this tonight with fried rice and egg rolls. I was very happy I added the rice and egg rolls because the low mein went uneaten.

    This was a simple dish to make. It just needs a little more salt or soy sauce.

    My family, which includes two teenage boys, enjoyed it very much.

    This recipe I thought my family would love but they did not. We will not be making this again.
