We didn’t have a Chinese restaurant in our little town growing up so Mom created her own recipe. It’s an easy recipe to put together.
I could set this up in the morning and head to work. The only thing I had to do was make rice or noodles when I returned and there was dinner!

- 1 15 oz can Chinese vegetables (drained)

- Spray pot with cooking spray, brown meat on high.
- Sprinkle flour over meat and stir.
- Pour water over meat and stir in remaining ingredients except Chinese vegetables. Cover and cook for 4 hours.
