Hamburger Chop Suey Recipe

Hamburger Chop Suey RecipeMany Years went by before I had the chance to taste or try a Chinese Chop Suey dish. I think it was mainly because of the area we lived in. There were no Chinese restaurants;-heck, there wasn’t even a Burger King around until I started growing up a little bit. Anyway, this Hamburger Chop Suey Recipe was the only form of Chop Suey I knew of at the time. It has been a staple for our family for many years. This is a simple recipe incorporating many of the ingredients from the store such as the Chop Suey vegetables. It is fairly quick to put together and requires very little prep time. I used roasted almond slivers for a garnish on this dish, but if you don’t care for that idea Chinese noodles also work out very well.

If you have never tried this American version of Chop Suey, give this Hamburger Chop Suey Recipe a try. It’s really good. Enjoy

Rice Pilaf Recipe

I had never made Rice Pilaf before and I thought I would give it a try. This Rice Pilaf Recipe is a very basic recipe that is very easy to prepare. I am sure if you wanted to you could spice it up a little bit but I thought the taste was excellent without the addition, of additional spices. I also have never used orzo pasta before. The only recommendation I would make on that is watch the orzo closely because it browns very quickly. Outside of that I served this as a side dish with fish, and we all enjoyed it. The next time you are looking for a flavored rice side dish give this Rice Pilaf Recipe a try, you’ll be surprised as to how easy it is to prepare, and I am sure you will be happy with the results.
