Connie's Chop Suey

Connie Ottman


My mother-in-law gave this recipe to me over forty years ago. What's so good about it is that you can add any kind of veggie you like. Also, you can use the posted meat or pork & beef or chicken. Try making the posted recipe first, then decide if you'd like to add additional items. We love this over chinese packaged noodles or rice. Enjoy!
