Chinese Tomato Chow Mein

This is a recipe I grew up on. Obviously, if you want it Gluten-free don't add the chow mein noodles. If you like Mexican you can make the Mexican Chow Mein version.

Chinese Tomato Chow Mein (printer friendly version)
2 T cornstarch
2 T Soy sauce
3-4 Tbsp salad oil, divided
1 lb. hamburger
1/2 tsp salt
dash pepper
2 green peppers, sliced
1/2 tsp garlic salt
3 Tomatoes peeled & cut into wedges or 2 14-oz cans diced
1/2 C bouillon or consomme
Cooked Rice
Chow Mein Noodles (opt.)

In a medium sized bowl combine soy sauce & cornstarch. Brown hamburger in 1 1/2 Tbsp-2 Tbsp oil with onion, salt & pepper. Remove from pan and combine with soy sauce mixture. Cook peppers lightly in remaining oil. Remove from pan and add beef mixture back into the pan and add garlic salt and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add peppers, tomatoes and bouillon. Cook until the sauce is thick. Serve over rice and top with Chow Mein Noodles if not eating GF. Makes 6 servings.
