how to make chopsueyLooking for pinoy chopsuey recipe? Chop suey or chopsuey is a vegetable dish with chicken or pork meat. This dish is very popular in the Philippines and considered as a Chinese dish. It is a common veggie dish but several variations as some people like their chopsuey with shrimp while other just includes chicken liver. I’m not a veggie lover but since it is a necessity, serving vegetable once in awhile is must. I love making chopsuey for it is easy to prepare and also inexpensive dish.

The good thing about this dish is that, you can add whatever vegetable your family eats. You also do not need to use all the vegetable ingredients, just substitute with whatever you fancy. Same with the meat, you can use pork instead of chicken. Some people also add shrimp to the chopsuey to give the dish added flavor. Here’s my recipe for chopsuey, hope you find it easy to make.
