Chop Suey Sandwich (New England Speciality)

5 years ago

This is a <strong>chop suey sandwich</strong> and it`s a lot different than chop suey you`d order at a Chinese restaurant. This chop suey sandwich is a New England specialty and is truly only something eaten (that I really know of) in Massachusetts. I know there are a few places (restaurants/diners) that offer chop suey sandwiches on their menu and I know of at least one store that sells refrigerated containers of it. But usually this is something folks in Massachusetts cook up in their own kitchens and share with friends and family. My mother actually made a big pot of this today and gave me some and shared it with others. Its SO yummy and reminds me of my grandmother. I recall being a little girl and eating this at her house.

Its relatively easy to make, you have to sauté onions and celery in a deep sauce pan. Once tender and cooked through, you add in raw hamburger, cooking until the meat is cooked through. You have to then drain off the fat and return back to the pan you cooked it in. You then add in a can of bean sprouts (do not drain the liquid!) and low sodium soy sauce. You cook it together and add a little bit of water if need be, but usually you wouldnt need any. If you want it thicker, you can add in a little cornstarch and water towards the end to thicken. Typically this is served on a hamburger bun, while others eat this with a spoon. I of course, like it best on the hamburger bun.

Have you ever had a chop suey sandwich?
