Chop Suey is a delicious dish composed of different kinds of vegetables and meat. If you are Filipino (or if your spouse is), you might have an idea on what this dish is all about. I first thought that Chop Suey is an authentic Chinese dish, but I learned that it was Chinese-American in nature. Regardless of where it came from, it is has been very popular with Filipinos.
I got acquainted with Chop Suey since I was a child. It has been a dish that my family enjoys. The version that I grew up eating is the one that uses chicken (and chicken liver) and I already featured the recipe when I was starting this food blog. Click here to see the recipe.
Pork Chop Suey is one of the simplest version that I make, as far as I am concerned because it does not require too many ingredients and it only takes around 30 minutes to make. I enjoy eating this with warm white rice.
