I think ACS/ Am goulash/ and JM taste different depending on what you decide to call it.

It was a great fall day and I put together my part of dinner and trekked around the short end of the lake to Dx's. We grilled boneless chix breast and thighs and I brought along some bbq sauce made with Catalina french dressing, whole berry cranberry sauce and fresh ginger, and some potatoes for baking/grilling. She made a salad and Yay- apple pie and ice cream. I came home with more Pie and a baggie chox chip cookies.

Ground beef satuéed with onion. Add tomato, paste and green bell peppers cook a bit and toss with cooked elbow macaroni.
In all fairness I'd never heard of ACS before here, but I made your recipe Andy, and it was delish!

In the Northeast, you're right. But the same general ground meat/noodle(pasta) dish exists under different names in every region. And, unfortunately, in my little 40x100 region (house lot size) of greater Cleveland, ACS was the name of what was a poorly executed riff on Chinese food. I REALLY have to relearn imagining YOUR version of the meal when YOU post "ACS".

The ACS I described is the New England standard name. I don't think it's used anywhere else, even though the dish is everywhere.

The ACS you describe does not sound appetizing. Sorry. Although I have a really good recipe for actual chop suey.

What's Cooking this Wednesday, 10-7-2015?

Growing up in the midwest (and still here, just a few states over), admitedly I had never heard of American chop suey.

I think the school lunch ladies also called it goulash.

Note to self: Next time you make ACS, don't tell anyone on DC.
