Gramma's Chop Suey

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Megans Mommy

Posting this for safekeeping. It's DH's grammas recipe, made for the first time last night. It's VERY americanized, and no way shape or form authentic chinese, but reminds DH of his childhood and his gramma, so I want to make it from time to time. Just wanted to keep safe for future use.

Made for New Kids on the Block Tag game 2010 and forgot to review. DH and I enjoyed this for our dinner and I made as instructed. I did top with some toasted sesame seeds and that was all. DH did say next time to add a little chili paste to the sauce (he likes zing) but he added while eating. Thank you for a good and easy recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. You can use any pork or beef, or mixture of both. I like to use boneless pork chops. Slice the pork or beef, marinate in the garlic, ginger, soy, pepper and oil for at least 2 hours or longer.
  2. Saute in a pan with some oil until browned. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the celery and onion with 1 cup water, and simmer for 15 minutes more. Mix the soy sauce, molasses, water and cornstarch until smooth. Add to the meat mixture and stir until thickened. Add the chinese vegetables and mix well.
  3. Serve over hot steamed rice with crunchy chow mein noodles.
