Vintage Recipe: Delectable Pork Chow Mein

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 


This recipe for Delectable Pork Chow Mein was written on the back of a pink piece of note paper. The front side of the page advertises “Bob Collier Electric Co.” in Denver, Colorado and has a handwritten recipe for Hamburger Tomato Scallop. Judging by the phone number of the company advertised (Pearl 3677), the page dates to around the 1950s or so.

This is an curious recipe for Hamburger Tomato Scallop. The recipe itself is interesting, even grabbing the attention of my picky teenage son who immediately requested I make the dish. But it is written on a piece of note paper from “Bob Collier Electric Co.” in Denver, Colorado. Judging by the phone number (Pearl 3677), the page dates to around the 1950s or so.

The instructions in the original recipe do not specify a time to bake the dish while covered so we have adjusted it.
