American Chop Suey

GB might the best cook ever, maybe. Out of the two of us, he thinks he is, that is. He always talked about making this recipe, one of his signatures- and finally did- it was delicious! I absolutely loved it.

You will need:

  • 1 Ib ground beef
  • olive oil
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 rib of celery
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 18 oz of macaroni
  • one 14 1/2 can of tomato sauce
  • one 14 1/2 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup of chicken stock
  • cheddar cheese

Cook beef. Set aside. Cook onions in oil,add bell pepper, celery. When soft, add garlic. Once done, add beef, then add chicken stock, tomatoes and sauce, incorporate. Then add macaroni and cover. Cook until macaroni noodles are al dente, about 30 minutes. Top with cheese and enjoy!

Enjoy!
