“This has been a long time family and kid friendly favorite for 40 plus years. I never knew what brown gravy sauce was or could I find it so have always used molasses. The recipe also works well on a camping menu. I have made this many, many times on a Coleman stove. Prep time is approximate. ENJOY..!! :)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute meat and onion in a small amount of butter or vegetable oil until meat is brown and no longer pink.
  2. Add salt, pepper, celery and water; cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add bean sprouts.
  3. Blend cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water and add soy sauce, sugar and brown gravy sauce.
  4. Stir into meat mixture and heat until thickened.
  5. Serve over Chow Mein Noodles.
  6. VARIATION: Omit hamburger and use leftover pork roast cut into bite size pieces along with leftover gravy. Canned sliced water chestnuts and/or a can of baby corn is a lovely addition as well.
  7. NOTE: This may also be served over linguine instead of Chow Mein Noodles as in Lo Mein.
