Chopsuey (Stir-Fried Vegetables)

Chop suey is a Chinese dish primarily made up of mixed vegetable with meat like chicker, beef, shrimp or pork, added for extra flavor.

In the Philippines, Chopsuey is a common dish and considered to be one of the top vegetable dishes. The local variation includes chicken liver, shrimp, and seasoned vegetables.
