A reader responded this week to one of my blog posts from back in 2011. She stated she learned to cook an Asian dish in her Home-Ec class in the 1960's, had lost the recipe and asked if I might know of such a recipe. I have a collection of cookbooks from the old "Favorite Recipes of Home Economics Teachers" that were popular in the 1960's. A careful search through each of them turned up a dead end!
Here are the ingredients that the reader remembers: ground meat, sausage, rice, soy sauce, bean sprouts, topped by dry noodles. Do any of you have such a recipe? I remember the "dry noodles" that were popular on Asian dishes back then but don't know the proper term for them.
I even did a search on allrecipes.com because that site has a search engine for recipes with specific ingredients. Didn't get anywhere with that either!
If you have this recipe, I will post it on my blog for the reader. . . she didn't give any contact information so I told her to check my blog in case that recipe shows up!
