How to cook Filipino Chopsuey

There are lots of Chinese influenced dishes that are popular in the Philippines and Chopsuey Recipe is one of them. Chopsuey simply means “mixed pieces” since it is cooked with various combinations of bite-size stir fried veggies in a thickened starchy sauce.

It is composed of chicken, pork, shrimp and vegetables such as cabbage, celery, bean sprouts, carrots and you may also include some other vegetables according to your liking. To make this Chopsuey Recipe more flavorful you may use meat broth instead of water and to make it more special, quail eggs, chicken liver and baby corn are sometimes added in this recipe.

    I would call this dish a good vegetable stir-fry, not a chopsuey. Got to have the bean sprouts! Cheers

    This looks delicious. I love Asian cuisines of many types, but often refrain from cooking it myself as the dishes often require many ingredients I don’t normally have in my pantry. This dish is nice as it really only has oyster sauce as an ingredient I wouldn’t normally have; I could easily find room for it 🙂
