    Molly53's Note:

    Chop suey is widely believed to have been invented in America by Chinese immigrants, but in fact it appears to originate in Taishan, a district of Guangdong Province which was the home of most of the early Chinese immigrants. Chop suey (Chinese 'mixed pieces') is an American-Chinese dish consisting of meats (often chicken, fish, beef, shrimp or pork), cooked quickly with vegetables such as bean sprouts, cabbage, and celery and bound in a starch-thickened sauce. This version comes from the Western chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947
