Now who doesn´t like Chinese food? To me, anyone protesting againt this hasn´t tried real good Chinese food yet. If so, the superduper popular Chop suey is a must ! And I promise, it´s so easy to make it´s almost embarrasing for me to lay out any recipe, but here it goes:
Cook your rice, because this will take around 20 minutes before it´s done, so it´ll be just in time for the chop suey.
A tradition in my family has been to use half a cup extra than the amount of cup with rice.
(Example 3 cups with rice = use 3,5 cup of water)
Use one piece of chicken filet per person.
(If you want to use another type of meat, or mix different types of meat together: go ahead!)
Slice the filet into small, very thin pieces.
Put the chicken slices in a small plastic bag.
Since we´re collecting salt and pepper from each time we cheat on our non existing diet, I use these practical MacD-souvenirs. 3 XS (extra small) container of pepper and 2 of salt.
Then I add 2 tablespoons of corn starch.
Make sure every chicken slice is covered with this mix.
Fry the meat, before you remove them from the pan again.
Cut the vegetables you´d like to include in this dish.
In the bowl, I have 3 tablespoons of soy (Silver Swan is the best of them all!) + some pepper.
Fry the vegetables for 1-2 minutes (alone in the pan, remember this!)
2 meat broths (for a dark sauce, OR use chicken broth for a lighter looking sauce) needs to be added with 6 dl boiled water. Mix this with the soy sauce, and pour it over the vegetables.
Mix another 2 tablespoons of corn starch with 6 tablespoons of water, and then pour this into the pan after the other sauce has been boiled away almost. Let this new mix boil for a while.
The vegetables are already in the pan. Then the sauce (from step 4) is added, and last the the meat is put in to the pan again.
Everything is mixed in the pan.
After a minute or so: voila!
The heat during the whole process was on the highest possible.
(We´ve heard different stories about using low/high heat for the best possible result, but as mentioned, we we used high heat -and the result was perfection!)
Good luck! :D
