This is a great meal for kids. My kids say it is a clone of the chef boyardee sauce in their products and I can make this for pennies. Thanks for sharing this kid pleaser Mimi in Maine! ChefDLH

I ate this often growing up in New England in the late 50's and 60's. It was called American Chop Suey in every household I knew. Everyone *knew* it wasn't authentic Chinese cuisine, but that was the name we all used back then. "Chop Suey" means "assorted pieces", which is very appropriate for this dish. Our family version included celery cut on the bias, and substituted a can of diced tomatoes for the tomato soup. The possible variations are endless, and the ingredients list depended on what we had on hand. It's a great way to stretch a pound of ground beef.

I have been making this dish since before I was married and living at home with my parents 30+ years ago. However, this is not chop Suey it's called goulash or beef-a-roni
