Very admirable though trying to make the best LC choices at food you like. Ditching the bun at good burger places has been AWESOME. Burger tastes 10 times better to me. So it seems like this is in the same vein.
Just remember the veggies are usually cooked in sauce also. This seems like a good approach from what you are saying. It just seems though to still taste like Chinese there has to be a good amount of sodium and sauce residue or something.
But if you like how it tastes and it is clean or clean enough for your diet, then go for it.
I know the seasoning/sauce residue undoubtedly has carbs, but as long as the meat isn't dripping with it, I feel I'm getting so little that it's negligible. I hope. It's not like I eat there all the time; maybe once a month.
