If anyone is interested,
I found the recipe in a old chinese cook book. 1952
I lived in Minneapolis and often ate chow mein from Jin's.
4 Tablespoons cooking oil or chicken fat (pork sausage)
3 teaspoons of salt
1\4 teaspoon of pepper
2 cups sliced chinese cabbage or boya cabbage
3 cups cut celery
2 cups of canned bean sprouts
2 teaspoons sugar
2 cups of stock
4 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 1\2 tablespoons of corn starch
1\4 cup of cold water
2 cups sliced cooked chicken
1 8 ounce bag of noodles
2 hardboiled eggs.
Heat oil salt and pepper in a deep hot skillet, add all the vegetables, the bean sprouts last. Sprinkle sugar over them. Stir. Add the stock and mix well. Cover the pan. Cook till boiling point, then turn mixture over. Cover and let cook till boiling about 10 minutes in all. Stir and add Soy sauce mixed with corn starch and water; stir slowly while the mixture thickens.
Place noodles on a plate cover with chow mein and top with sliced chicken and hardboiled eggs. White rice is used as a side dish.
Makes 4 servings..
I think Jin's makes this recipe the day before they serve it, my leftovers tasted more like Jins then right after I cooked it.
Next time I make this I am going to leave it overnight in the fridge and then serve it up... Jin also uses pork sausage as a filler, so next time I am using the pork sausage instead of cooking oil to cook my veggies..
Enjoy all you lovers of Jins Chow Mein!!
