This is a Chinese-style stir-fry with a brown sauce. You can use any combination of your favorite vegetables. The sauce can be made ahead of time, so you can easily just stir-fry the veggies and add in the sauce. Add chicken, beef, or (my favorite) fried tofu. This recipe is easily adaptable to use your favorite vegetables - just chop enough to completely fill your large skillet. Garnish with chow mein noodles.
