Lo Mein as promised

A friend passed along this recipe and said it was really good so why not give it a try. In this recipe you can use either chicken, beef, shrimp or skip the meat. I boiled the pasta and vegetable and marinated the beef in teryaki sauce in the morning so I wouldn't have to do all the steps at dinner time.

Lo Mein
beef or chicken cut into pieces
1 1/2 cups of spaghetti broken in half
1 cup baby corn (optional)
1 cup carrots cut julienne
1/2 pound snow pea
1 1/4 cornstarch
2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon sugar
1/3 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon soy sauce
4 cloves finely chopped garlic
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger or 2 teaspoons of fresh ginger finely chopped
1/2 cup bean sprouts (optional)

Fill a large saucepan with water and bring to a boil then add spaghetti, carrots, snow peas and corn. Cook till pasta is al dente. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.

In a small bowl mix water, sugar and cornstarch. Then add soy sauce, broth garlic and ginger.

In a non stick skillet or wok heat 1 tablespoon of oil then add beef or chicken. Cook till beef is no longer pink or chicken is white about 2-3 minutes. Add in broth mixture, pasta and vegetables. Cook for 2 minutes.

The first picture in this post is of the second batch of lo mein and I think I forgot the soy sauce. This is a picture of the other batch and how it would look with the sauce.
