Do you know Chop Soui?

The thing I don’t like about Chop Soui is the bean sprouts.  I don’t like the taste and weird I don’t like the way it looks LOL  My mother made Chop Soui when I was young.  I ate it but didn’t like.  And then, older, when I was a teenager, I said no to it and ate something else.  Maybe her recipe was not so great.

I saw this recipe of Chop Soui in the magazine of Ricardo.  I always love his recipes.  I decided to try it but for my boyfriend.  I tasted it.  In fact, it’s the better Chop Soui I have ever tasted.  But again, I leave it for him for his lunches of the week LOL  I’m so generous 😀 And he’s happy.  So everyone’s happy.  That’s great!

Chop Soui
From Ricardo

4 servings

  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 celery root, diced
  • 1 carrot, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil (I used only 1 tablespoon in a large non-stick skillet)
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped
  • 3/4 lb lean ground beef (I had 1 lb)
  • 6 cups bean sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a large skillet or a wok, stir-fry the onions, celery and carrot in half the oil until onion begins to brown. Add garlic and ginger. Stir-fry 1 minute. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  2. In the same skillet, stir-fry the beef in remaining oil at high heat, breaking it until it’s completely cooked and cooking liquid has evaporated.
  3. Add the cooked veggies and bean sprouts. Add soy sauce and reheat well. Adjust seasoning.
