This one I use with whatever I have on hand. I don't always have the coleslaw mix or shredded carrots, and I have used it with hamburger meat. The kids and DH love it!


Pork Lo Mien

1-1 ˝ lbs ground pork
1 c. chopped onion (optional - & frozen is fine)
Soy sauce
3 c. broccoli florets (frozen is fine)
4-8 oz. can mushrooms
1 c. shredded carrots
3 c. coleslaw mix
2 packs. Of oriental-flavor ramen noodles

1. Cook pork and onion

2. Drain mixture

3. Add back to pot. Cook on med-high. Add the following ingredients, one at a time, and stir in well before adding the next: broccoli, mushrooms, carrots and cabbage. Sauté all together for a few min. until veggies look slightly tender.

4. Add 3 c. of water. Cover and bring to a boil. Boil 2 minutes.

5. Crumble in noodle and add seasoning packets from ramen noodles. Simmer, covered, for about 2 min. or until noodles are almost soft.

6. Uncover and simmer a few more min. until noodles are soft and most of the liquid has evaporated.

Don't sweat it!

I love this soup. If you like it spicier you could add one chipoltle (sp) to it.

Tried this tonight. It was very good.


CROCK POT POTATOES

1 lg. pkg. frozen hash browns
1 med. onion, chopped
1 sm. carton sour cream
2 cans cream of potato soup
1 soup can of milk
3/4 lb. Velveeta cheese, cubed
1 stick butter

Mix all in crock pot on high. Stir again after 1 hour then cook 4 hours on high, then 8 hours on low.
Or this recipe can also be made using the oven method baking this in 325 oven stirring once baking until brown on top, about 1 1/2 hours. This will serve 10 to 12 guests.
