Homemade Beef and Pork Chop Suey

Kelly Williams


Total comfort food! I like mine over rice and topped with chow mein noodles. Does that make it "chop suey" or "chow mein"? Either way, it's a pot of heaven! Don't forget the fortune cookies! Enjoy! (My own recipe. Photo from the movie "A Christmas Story".)
