DH suggested throwing in the leftover roasted kielbasa and potatoes from the night before, so I did that. Then I tried to eat it and got the worst heartburn. I'm going to be very upset if this continues as I don't like bland food. So I had some toasted baguette and butter for dinner.

Luckily, DH loved it and had two bowls. It will be his lunch this coming week.
In our house growing up it was called goulash, I never heard it called American Chop Suey until I was an adult. It would not surprise me if it was a magazine recipe from around the time of the Great Depression.

That's only because it's true

I never heard it called American Chop Suey until DC, either. It's what my family always called goulash, my most favorite comfort food.

Same here. It's always been goulash. I don't even think I've ever eaten chop suey, Asian or otherwise. That is a dish isn't it, or a noodle? Does it resemble chop suey?

Chop suey (the chinese kind) is a stir-fry of veggies (and meat) in a light sauce made with oyster and soy sauces, wine, sugar, corn starch...

If you serve it with crispy fried noodles, it's chow mein!

Now *this* one my mom made frequently when I was growing up. One night we would have pork roast, the next night pork chop suey!

Don't forget your galoshes, Harry

Andy, I Googled chop suey while waiting for an answer and that's exactly what I came up with.
It makes me wonder how American chop suey for goulash got started. I do not see the similarity.
