Pork Steak Chop Suey

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Gwen Sargeant

Mom made this when I was growing up and a favorite among the seven of us. Mom would make it in a deep cast iron frying pan. She would have dad get his serving out and then the rest of us could eat, otherwise dad wouldn't get any. I will suggest something that you may think ewwwww....but try it. Serve this dish with celery stuffed with peanut butter. It is EXCELLENT.

I have always made my chop suey, as my Mother did, out of the cans! Never again. I loved this recipe and will use it over and over. I added garlic, sliced broccoli stems, water chestnuts and chopped peppers. The sugar and salt were omitted and the soy sauce was increased to 2T. I like soy! I'm sure this is much healthier than using the canned veggies so thanks for a great and healthy version.
