Thank you so much for the awesome recipe! It tastes exactly like the St. Paul that I love from St. Louis! I am from St. Louis but do not live there any more. So great that I can now not only crave these yummy sandwiches but make them at home.
Great recipe, delicious, cheap to make, very filling!
Fantastic!! Not many people know about this sandwich. It has always been a favorite of mine! So, So glad I found the recipe!! Thnx!
It appears Sue Lau doesn't know the history as those of us from STL know exactly why it is called a St. Paul. I needed a recipe since I moved away and this is pretty good. These sands are the best in the cold of winter. When I moved to Chicago and went into a Chinese joint (because these are NOT served in restaurants - only joints) they looked at me like I was speaking - Korean ;=) This recipe fills the crave.
You have all the fundamentals of a St. Paul so I am rendering them 4 stars for that. However, in St. Louis St. Paul's there is no soy sauce in the mix they season it with salt and pepper. Lastly the cornstarch is off so these will cook pretty flat and be more like omelets, not fluffy. I was taught to make these by my mom who worked in a Chinese restaurant in the 60's. We mix them up individually using about 2 tsp each.
this was so good. reminded me of home. grew up in Belleville, Il, just across the river and this was a favorite of mine. A great taste of home. Here I am in TX and this is the closest I can get to it. Thanks so much for sharing this withus.
