Chopsuey with Quail Eggs is a version of Chopsuey (or Chop Suey) that makes use of thin slices of pork and boiled quail eggs, along with the usual vegetables. In the Philippines, chopsuey has been very popular. It is also spelled and referred to as Chapsuy of Sapsuy by some people.
This chopsuey recipe is simple and delicious. The pork provides flavor to this dish, while the shrimp cube made it even tastier. The combination of flavors was amazing. I really enjoyed eating it.
The key to having the best chopsuey is in the quality of your vegetables. It should be fresh and crisp. It will also be great if the veggies are not overcooked. Otherwise, these would turn mushy.
This recipe suggests the use of pork, but you can also make use of chicken breast (like in our original chopsuey recipe) and even seafood. Additional vegetables can also be added. Snap peas or snow pea is a good vegetable to add.
Chopsuey is best eaten with steamed white rice. I personally enjoy it with beef and broccoli for some reason.
