Chop suey Cooking Instructions:
Heat wok and add oil. When oil is ready, add the beef. Stir-fry beef until redness is gone. Remove and set aside.
Reheat wok and add more oil. When oil is ready, stir-fry each of the vegetables. The order doesn’t matter, but you can stir-fry the onions and celery together, and the green pepper and snow peas together. Add salt to taste as desired while stir-frying each group of vegetables. Add 2 tablespoon soy sauce and 2 cups of water or chicken broth and cover.
Reheat wok and add oil. Give the sauce ( 3 Tbs. water, 3 Tbsp. Oyster sauce, 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, dissolved in 1/4 cup of water, 1 Tbsp. cooking oil) a quick re-stir. Add and combine all the cooked ingredients in the wok. Make a “well” in the center and gradually add the sauce, stirring to thicken. Once it has boiled, remove the chop suey from the stove. Serve hot.
