Chow Mein Sandwiches

This recipe is authentic to the Fall River, MA area and the Rhode Island area as well. And if you really want them to be authentic you can then throw them all in a brown paper sack so they get squished some more. I got this recipe from Emeril and it’s right on the money, taste exactly the way I remember them as a child. The wax paper is crucial.

This recipe is authentic to the Fall River, MA area and the Rhode Island area as well. And if you really want them to be authentic you can then throw them all in a brown paper sack so they get squished some more. I got this recipe from Emeril and it's right on the money, taste exactly the way I remember them as a child. The wax paper is crucial.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion halved & sliced

  1. Mix cornstarch with 1 cup of the chicken broth and set aside.
  2. In deep frying pan heat oil on med-high heat.

  4. Add bean sprouts and stir fry for another 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add the remaining 3 cups of chicken broth and pepper and simmer on med-high heat uncovered until onion and celery are at a texture appealing to you. I like them to have a little bit of crunch to them.
  6. Add cornstarch mixture and continue to heat until thickened.
  7. Add molasses, stir well and remove from heat.
  8. In a separate bowl mix chow mein noodles and veggie mix together to a consistency that you want.
  9. Spoon mixture onto hamburger buns and press down lightly on the tops of buns.
