Soak 5 Shitake dry mushrooms for 30 min. in hot water.

Slice 2 med. onions into a bowl.
Slice 4 celery stalks, 2 green peppers into a bowl.

Put 2 t. chopped garlic and 1 minced green onion into a little bowl.

Mix 10 T. (a mixture of 2/3 dark soy sauce and 1/3 normal soy sauce that totals 4 1/2 oz.) mix with some cornstarch (about 2 t.)

Slice 1 c. cooked or raw beef onto a plate. Slice mushrooms into strips.Set aside 2 drained 4 oz. cans of regular American mushrooms.

Heat 5 T. oil super hot and flash fry a few seconds the garlic and green onion.

Dump in the normal onions and stir fry for 2 min.
Add celery and green pepper and stir fry for 1 min.

Add everything else (beef, mushrooms, sauce) and stir until heated through and thickened.

As with any Chinese dish, you can put in more water if it's too thick; more water+cornstarch if it's too thin.

Serve with, of course, white rice.

Mix 2 1/2 c. water, 1 c. rice, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 envelope Lipton onion soup.

Pour into large baking pan (Lasagna pan).

Place 2-3 lb. quartered or cut up fryer pieces on top of rice mixture.

Bake 1 hour in 350 oven covered with foil.

Bake 1/2 hour uncovered.
(To use pork instead of chicken, trim fat from, then brown in skillet 6-8 pork chops.
Then follow the above recipe.)
Simmer 3/4 hour whatever chicken parts you wish that will make 3 c. cubed chicken meat. (or use leftover turkey or chicken meat that makes 3 c. cubed)

Saute 1/2 c. chopped onion and 4 T. chopped green pepper in 6 T. butter until limp.

Add 6 T. flour and stir until blended.

Stir in 2 cans Campbell's Chicken Broth, 1/2 c. milk, 1/2 c. evaporated milk a little at a time to blend into the thick roux of flour and butter.

Stir over med-high flame until thickened.

Add chicken, 4 T. chopped pimento, & 8 oz. canned sliced mushrooms.

Keep warm and serve over toast slices.

(You can substitute Baked Chicken (or turkey) juices for the same amount of Broth above: When you bake a chicken or turkey, pour a cup of hot water into the baking dish and scrape up the browned juices. Pour the result into a pyrex measuring cup or something, and refrigerate overnight. Scrape off and discard the fat that rises to the top.)

Mix 1 1/2 c. flour, 3 T. cocoa, 1 t. baking soda, 1 c. sugar, 1/2 t. salt, 5 T. Wesson oil, 1 T. vinegar, 1 t. vanilla, 1 c. cold water.

Mix all dry ingredients and put into greased 9x9 cake pan.

Then Add the wet ingredients, beating with a spoon until mixed into flour.

Cook at 350 1/2 hour

1 1/2 c. diced ham
8 peeled and sliced potatoes (sliced about one-eighth inch thick)
3 T. minced onion

Heat oven to 300.

Make white sauce: melt 2 T. butter in a saucepan, add 3 T. flour. Add 2 1/2 c. milk, plus salt and pepper to taste.

Put about 1/3 of the potatoes in a buttered Lasagne pan, sprinkle 1 T. onion over it, then sprinkle 1 T. flour on it. Add 1/3 of the ham.

Continue making two more layers.

Pour white sauce over all. Add enough additional milk to casserole until the milk just covers the potatoes.

Dot with butter.

Bake 1 1/2 hour, uncovered.

(pork casserole)
Mix 1 lb. boneless chicken thighs (cut into 1 1/2" X 1/2" strips), 1 t. salt, 1 t. sugar, 2 t. soy sauce, T. oyster sauce

(For Oyster sauce, use "PREMIUM DAU HAO THUONG HANG in 18 oz. bottles with a colorful label of a woman rowing a boat.)

Wash and remove the tips from 20 snow peas (or use the same amount of slices of green pepper). Cut 1 med. onion into 1/4" wedges. Sliver 3 green onions.

Have 1/2 c. chicken broth ready.

Mix sauce: 1 T. Hoisin Sauce (use KOON CHUN brand, for most Chinese ingredients), 1 T. catsup, 1 1/2 t. dark soy sauce, 1 t. crushed dried red chili pepper, 1 t. sesame oil.

Head your Wok. Add 2 T. vegetable oil (corn oil is good, it doesn't burn easily). Dump in and stir 1 T. minced garlic and 1 t. minced fresh ginger a few seconds, then
dump in chicken and wedges of onion. Stir fry for 3 min over high heat. Add peas & chicken stock. Cover and cook 2 min. over high heat.

Add sauce and slivered green onions. Mix & serve at once.

(You can use canned American mushrooms in this to good effect as well.)

Instead of buying expensive Italian Sausage for inclusion in Pizza or Lasagne:

Buy 1 lb. ground pork and mix in:

1 1/2 t. salt.
3 1/2 t. paprika
2/3 t. garlic powder
1/3 t. fennel seed (adds that important licorice taste)
1 t. (black pepper, not fresh)

Let sit in refrigerator for several hours, then cook 15 min. in covered frypan over low with 1/4 c. water.

For "hot" style Italian sausage: add 1/4 t. crushed red pepper to the above.
(Medieval recipe for Split Pea Soup)

Cook 1/2 c. chopped bacon. Then saute in with the bacon, 1 1/2 c. chopped onion, 2 cloves garlic,

Meanwhile, boil 1 c. diced carrots in the microwave until soft.

Into a pot put 4 c. chicken stock, 1/4 t. thyme, 2 T. fresh parsely, 1 1/2 c. split peas, a pinch (very little) of nutmeg and caraway seeds. Salt and pepper.

Simmer 3 hours, adding more broth if necessary, until you've got a thick porridge.
Heat oven to 350

Fill a pie pan with a raw shell and poke holes in it with a fork.

In a double boiler, using hand mixer or whisk, combine:

1/2 c. light brown sugar and 1 stick softened butter (10 seconds in the microwave to soften)

3/4 c. sugar, 3 eggs (one at a time), 1/4 t. salt, 1/4 c. light corn syrup, 1/2 c. milk.

Stir over boiling water for 5 min.

Add 1 c. chopped pecans and 1/2 t. vanilla

Bake 1 hour.

Add 1/4 c. more nuts on top and bake 5 min. more.

This is an excellent, meaty, but not fattening dinner.

Separate 2 lbs. of pork spareribs into individual ribs by cutting them through with a knife.

Using a cleaver, chop the ribs into 1 1/2" pieces (this is important, it releases the marrow into the gravy).

Trim off any fat and mix in 1 1/2 T cornstarch to the meat.

Make the sauce:
1 1/2 c/ chicken broth, 1 t. salt, 1 t. sugar,
3/4 t. chili paste with garlic (available in Oriental Grocery Stores, it's a Vietnamese sauce); or use same amount of chili seeds shake if you must; 1 T. Hoisin Sauce, 1 T. catsup, 1 T. dark soy sauce, 1 T. oyster sauce, 1 1/2 T. white wine.

Mix 2 T. cornstarch into 4 T. water (as an emergency thickener should you need it).

Heat 2 T. oil in Wok. Add 1 T. chopped garlic, 2 diced green onions. Stir in pork and stir fry for 3 min.

Add the sauce and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over medium 40 min. If there is less than 1 c. sauce at the end of this process, add some more broth.

This recipe works equally well with chicken instead of pork.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
