Ground Beef and Savoy Cabbage Lo Mein

Cooking time:  25 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

        I like using ground beef in stir-fries - it's economical, easy...  And I have a hard time finding tender beef here without paying a fortune. We're using the other half of the green pepper....

Ground Beef and Savoy Cabbage Lo Mein

Total time: 25 minutes  
   Stir-fries cook quickly and are very flexible when it comes to ingredients.  I always try for a mix of colors, textures and flavors... Savoy cabbage works in place of the more traditional bok choy.
