CHOP SUEY - VEGETABLE DISH THE FILIPINO WAY

Chopsuey is a very popular and classic Chinese dish that has been adopted by Filipino cuisine, chop suey is a stir fried vegetable dish cooked with meat, carrots, snow peas, baby corn and quail eggs.


Other vegetables that may be included in chop suey are cauliflower, celery, cabbage, bamboo shoots, broccoli and mushrooms. In other words chop suey is a variation of stir fried mixed vegetables. - In Chinese chop suey means (mixed pieces) so to us in here in Malaysia we are more comfortable to refer this dish as mixed vegetables or chap cai.

Chop Suey adalah masakan Cina yang popular di Filipino, malah bila sebut aje chop suey ramai yang akan menganggapnya sebagai makana orang Filipina. Chop Suey ini adalah seperti sayur campur goreng yang banyak menggunakan sayuran dan daging, tidak kira apa daging sekali pun. Dimasak secara tumis dan banyak menggunakan minyak bijan dan memekatkanya dengan tepung jagung.

Kerana hendak menyelamatkan hati ayam lebihan dari buat bihun soup ayam baru ini saya gorenglah chop suey sepinggan. Saya memang suka ratah aje. Saya gunakan apa aje sayur yang ada. Dalam chop suey ini apa aje saya boleh digunakan biasanya pemilihan sayur bergantung pada warna warni sayur supaya ianya nampak lebih meriah. Untuk memaniskan masakan sos ikan dan air stok ayam diguna. Sedap makan panas-panas dengan nasi.
