I love this baked chop suey recipe. If it is a cool day, I bring out a pound of hamburger and in no time I have a delicious and easy meal on the table. Comfort food at it's best.
Chop suey is known by many names. I see homemade chop suey recipes that look like goulash to me. You know, the ground beef, macaroni and tomato dish you make in a pan on the stove.
My version is different. I use the ground beef, and instead of pasta I use rice. So it is a hamburger rice dish. I love this version so much better (maybe it is just a Wisconsin thing).
I have given you the framework and you can interchange ingredients if you want to. Instead of hamburger, you may use shredded pork - it's up to you.
MOCK CHOP SUEY HOT DISH
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp homemade garlic powder
1 tsp homemade onion powder
1 small onion, diced
1 cup chopped celery
1 can (10-1/2 oz) homemade condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 can (10-1/2 oz) chicken vegetable soup
2 cups water
2 TBS homemade soy sauce
1/2 cup uncooked rice
chow mein noodles (a must for this recipe)
PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees.
Place the ground beef in a saucepan with the onion and celery. Sprinkle with garlic and onion powder and fry until no longer pink. Drain and set aside.
In a bowl, mix the condensed soup with the warm water, 1/2 cup raw rice and soy sauce. Fold in the ground beef mixture and spoon into a casserole dish sp. Bake for 30 minutes. Sprinkle dry chow mein noodles on top and bake another 30 minutes.
What goes famously with this hot dish is a slice of homemade bread and butter. So good. You can even bring out the chopsticks. I would starve then, because I have no clue how to use them...
