Pork Chop Suey Filipino Style Recipe!!!

Pork Chop Suey Filipino Style Recipe!!!

Untitled

Chop Suey literally means assorted pieces. It’s become a staple of Chinese overseas cuisine consisting of meat, seafood, poultry, or eggs, quickly cooked with vegetables such as cabbage, celery, beans, sprouts, in a starch-thickened sauce.  In short what many of us call stir-fry.

When we have parties, fiestas or other events we always order  Chop Suey from the local Chinese restaurant or we cook it at home.   We will be making some for our town fiesta this coming May 15, 2016.

The combination of vegetables and meat/seafood is perfect and the taste is fantastic.  Most of my family is vegetarian so we make this with just veggies.  I make it for my grandmother and she loves it.  But for now I will give you my version of Chop Suey with Pork.   You’re  definitely gonna love this!


Ingredients:

1/2 lb. pork, cut into thin strips

1 tsp. soy sauce

1 tsp. oyster sauce

1 tsp. corn starch

salt and pepper, to taste

1 to 1-1/2 cup chicken broth or water

2 tbsp. oyster sauce

2 tbsp. corn starch

1/2 tsp. sugar

3 stalks celery, cut diagonally into 1 inch long

15 to 20 pcs. snow peas, trimmed

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper

1-1/2 cup baby carrots, halved

1 can slice mushroom, drained

1 can miniature cut cobs of corn, drained

1 onion, chopped

 

Directions:

Cut the pork into thin strips.

Stir together 1 tbsp. oyster sauce, soy sauce, corn starch, salt and pepper.  Add the meat and marinate for 10 to 15 minutes then set aside.

In a small bowl, whisk together broth, 1 tbsp. oyster sauce, corn starch and sugar.  Set   aside.

Heat oil in a pan or wok over medium heat.  Fry pork for about 3 to 5 minutes.

Add garlic and onion until soft and translucent. Stir in baby carrots for about a minute. Add the rest of the vegetables, stir-frying for a minute or two after each addition.

Add the corn starch mixture, bring to a boil then lower the heat and continue stirring until well blended and sauce thickens.

Remove immediately from heat after heated through.

Bruschetta Filipino Style – Fresh!

Bruschetta Filipino Style – Fresh!

Bruschetta

 

Bruschetta pronounced  (bruˈsketta) is traditionally an antipasto, appetizer,  from Italy.  Bruschetta is  grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt to taste.  You may include toppings of basil, tomato, beans, vegetables, cheese or cured meat.  Bruschetta can also be served as a snack.

In some countries, grilled bread topped with chopped tomato, olive oil and herbs is popularly marketed under the bruschetta name.

Bruschetta is very easy to prepare.  You can make it in just 5 minutes and enjoy it any time of  year. You don’t need to cook anything, just toast bread!  But you must use fresh ingredients to make your  Bruschetta perfect.  I like spicy food, so to give my Bruschetta a bit zip I add Bell Pepper and Chili Pepper.  You can use Jalapeno or Habanero pepper or any type of hot pepper you have on hand.

Here’s my version of Bruschetta with a Filipino twist! I’m sure you really like this version.

 

Ingredients:

½ Loaf Sandwich Bread

5-6   Ripe tomatoes

5-6   Red Bell Pepper

¼ cup  Olive Oil

¼ tbsp.  Ground black pepper

2 cloves  Garlic

1   Chili Pepper  or  1 tsp. Chili powder

Salt to taste

1/2 cup Velveta or Cheez Whiz (or other meltable cheese)

 

Directions:

Bruschetta

Cut off crust all the way around each slice of bread.  Cut the crustless squares in to 4 quarters – 4 smaller squares.

Place bread on a baking sheet and toast in the oven on the low broil setting for about 1-2 minutess or until the bread turns brown, set aside.[spacer height=”20px” id=”2″]

 

morWash the chili pepper, garlic, tomatoes and red peppers.

Chop veggies into  small pieces.  Mix well.

Take  ½  of the veggie mixture and crush well with a  mortar and pestle, set the remaining chopped mixture aside.

Add the olive oil, chili pepper, ground black pepper, and salt to taste to the  crushed mixture. Crush it again until all ingredients are mixed well.

Spoon the crushed mixture on top of each piece of toasted bread, divide the mixture evenly over all bread pieces.

Heap spoonfuls of the chopped veggie mixture on each piece of bread.

Melt cheese and drizzle over the chopped veggie mixture.
