Home Made Chinese Chow Mein
Years ago, my husband had a Roofing business in the city of Oakland, California, and if he had a job in China Town Oakland, I would often meet him for
lunch.He had three favorite Chinese
restaurants; one was called the Economy Café.The food was excellent, and reasonable, but the place was very
small.So small in fact that there was a
need to SHARE tables with other customers.Regular patrons were okay with this, and they expected to have company
join with them at their table.
Another restaurant was owned by a family, and you could watch
their children in the back room playing, while their parents worked the front.I remember seeing a play pen with a small
baby on one occasion.
The third restaurant was very different.There was no menu, because the waiter would
come by with a cart loaded with delicious looking foods, and you could select
the dish you wanted.Each entrée was
added to your bill and everything was so inviting it was difficult to choose.
I decided to create my own recipe for Chow Mein.I often used a can of Spam sliced into small pieces to make Pork Chow
Mien.Naturally you can use beef or chicken
either of which makes a lovely dish.This recipe is simple and easy to make.
Chinese Chow Mein
1 small bunch Bok Choy chopped 1 small chopped
(I used the Chinese thin noodles - - boiled
In a large pot, sauté celery, onion
and Bok Choy in oil for about 5 minutes or until crisp-tender.Add bean sprouts, mushrooms, water chestnuts,
In a large bowl, blend cornstarch with
water. When smooth, add chicken broth and soy sauce to bowl.Mix well and pour over meat and vegetables.Bring to a boil, stirring until sauce
thickens.Reduce heat to low. Cover and
simmer 5 to 10 minutes.Serve over hot, boiled
Chinese noodles, cooked rice, or Crisp chow mien noodles.
