I was trying to find a recipe for lo mein noodles and this recipe came up. I decided to make it fit what I was looking for. I didn't add carrots, water chestnuts, broccoli or peppers. Intead I added beef sliced up in thin slices, onions, and cabbage. YUM! The Udon noodles had a wonderful flaver and even the left overs were great. The whole family enjoyed it. I am definately adding this to my list of favs!
