I haven’t made Chinese food in a while and had a piece of beef fillet and decided on Chinese Beef Fillet Chop Suey which the family finished in no time!

What Is Chop Suey?

Chop suey is a dish in American Chinese cuisine and other forms of overseas Chinese cuisine, consisting of meat (often chicken, fish, beef, shrimp, or pork) and eggs, cooked quickly with vegetables such as bean sprouts, cabbage, and celery and bound in a starch-thickened sauce. It is typically served with rice but can become the Chinese-American form of chow mein with the addition of stir-fried noodles.
