Expert Tips

You won't find chop suey in China; it's actually a Chinese-American dish dating back to the mid-nineteenth century.

Make your own stir-fry vegetable combination when you mix 1 1/2 cups sliced celery, 1 1/4 cups sliced carrot, 3/4 cup snow (Chinese) pea pods and 1/2 cup coarsely chopped onion.
