Expert Tips

Chow mein meat is usually coarsely ground pork. If it isn't available, use regular ground beef or pork.

For safety, start with hot cooked ground meat when slow cooking. Cold uncooked ground meat takes too long to come to a safe temperature in a slow cooker. Also, use cooked and drained ground meat to help eliminate the extra fat and liquid that accumulate during cooking.
