One of my favorite meals when I was a boy was Chow Mein Sandwiches from a place in Pawtucket/North Providence, RI. They were about 10 or 15 cents apiece and my mother would pick up a whole bag on the way to grandmas. My Grandmother found this product online and started handing them out to the rest of us. I made it for the first time today! It is EXACTLY like the chow mein I remember from that greasy, old chinese restaurant. I put in on hamburger buns and it brought me right back to when I was a boy on the way to grandmas. Perfect, just perfect. I'm going to order a few boxes right now.

I never heard of Hoo Mee Chow Mein mix until I saw it used by Emeril during a nostalgic Fall River hometown food episode.

I was intrigued by the product because it resembled the chow mein of my early childhood growing up in California's San Joaquin Valley. In those days the local restaurants served a stirfry mixture of onions, celery, bean sprouts, and some choice of chopped meat in a gravy/sauce that was served on a mound of somewhat crisp panfried noodles. Nothing fancy, but delicious in a comfort food nostalgia way.

Living now in San Francisco I never encounter chow mein prepared in this manner....even the so called "Hong Kong style" fails to replicate the old favorite flavors.

This week I prepared my first package of the Hoo Mee kit. I was leary of the package directions and decided to deviate somewhat by stirfrying my veggies rather than boiling then in the "gravy". Otherwise, I followed package instructions. I combined my cooked veggies with the "gravy" and ladled the mixture over a mound of the crispy noodles. I garnished with slivers of Chinese BBQ Pork.

WOW!!! Very tasty and extremely easy to prepare. The package made a large portion...but this might be due to the generous amount of fresh vegetables I added. I would easily feed three very hungry adults or four adults with additional side dishes.

The foodie elite will sniff with disdain at this product, but it is still delicious and comforting. There were no leftovers to throw away at my house!!

This is the original and the best. I see some reviews that mention the fire. Well that was then and this is now and it is back to tasting like the original. I never follow the instructions as it makes a thin watery version. You need to add more gravy mix. I do the simple version, take chicken breast, 1 lb chopped into thing strips or small chunks, add 1 tablespoon dry sherry, cooking sherry, shaoxing wine or sake to a teaspoon low sodium soy(I use Kikkoman), 1/2 teaspoon salt, a pinch of white pepper(optional) mix well with hands, then add 1 tablespoon peanut or canola oil, mix in well to coat evenly, then add 1 tablespoon Corn starch, mix well to coat evenly. Marinade chicken in that for 1 hour. 3/4 cup of yellow onion cut in small slices 1/4" thick, cut celery 1/4" slices about 3 to 3-1/2 cups, add 2 tablespoon peanut or canola oil to pan and heat onion and celery till just warm, Put 3 cups low sodium chicken broth or homemade stock in bowl, add about 3 to 4 heaping tablespoons of the Hoo Mee gravy mix and whisk it in good, pour over the celery and onion, bring it to quick boil and stir in the chicken, it will thicken up, lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes till chicken is cooked, do not overcook. That is it, done! Serve with fried noodle, rice or as sandwiches on soft rolls. I don't buy the kits just the gravy and noodles separate. Some people add a drop of toasted sesame oil but be very careful it overpowers easily. I like it plain with fried noodles.

Easy to use, have enjoyed this for many years in an area of the country where this a native favorite. However the boxes arrived beyond the date for freshness on the boxes. This group was stale. I was disappointed because I love my hometown favorite.

As a native of Fall River, Mass. I crave chow mein "Fall River" style. This is an easy, delicious meal to make. I use 3 onions quartered, 3-4 stalks of celery chopped, sliced mushrooms 4-5 fresh or 1 jar drained. Put everything into beef broth add cup of water then bring to a boil put in 3/4lbs. ground chicken or beef then dissolve packet per directions and add fresh bean sprouts. Serve with french fries and rice wine vinegar. Everyone loves it!!!!

Unless you were born and raised in Fall River, MA, you wouldn't have a clue about Hoo Mee Chow Mein. Also, you wouldn't have the local culinary experience to critique it. It is the best chow mein anywhere and I've been ordering it since I moved to Kansas City 19 years ago. Now that I heard it burned down, I'll be in withdrawal until they rebuild the place and start making it again. Thank God for Hoo Mee!!!!!

Always love this chow mein, super easy to make, just follow the directions. You can add hamburg or chicken, bean sprouts, whatever, use broth instead of water for more flavor, put it on a hamburger bun and you have a chow mein sandwich. A little salt and pepper, a sprinkle of vinegar. Might not be fancy, but it is good stuff! Goes great with a coffee milk!
