Whip up this creamy pork chop suey for a great family dinner. It is such a simple recipe, but one that everyone is sure to love.

This was always one of my family’s favorite dinners growing up and it is still a hit today.
If you are looking for an authentic pork chop suey recipe, you are in the wrong place. I don’t think Chinese cuisine usually uses a can of cream of mushroom soup.
However if you are looking for a delicious and easy family meal, you are definitely in the right place. This recipe has been a staple in my family for as long as I can remember.
It is quick and easy to make, which was perfect for my mom who
was raising 6 busy kids. It is also perfect for us after a long day at
work when we come home hungry and tired.
Some members of our family like putting the crunchy chow mein
noodles on top for more texture. I personally like eating it plain,
that lets the creamy comfort food aspects of this dish shine through.
Either way it is delicious. Serve it with some broccoli or green beans to have a super quick and balanced meal.
What MiMi had to say about the recipe in 2015:
Shortly after pops and I got married, Marlene invited us over to dinner. She made us a pork chop suey dinner.
I really enjoyed it a lot but didn’t have the recipe when I went to make it. This is the version I came up with when trying to match the taste.
I’m anxious to see Marlene’s recipe to see how different it is from the one I made up. Our family really enjoys this dinner.
K.C. has even requested it for a birthday dinner. It is one of his favorites.
More recipes from Aunt Marlene:
MiMi also highly recommends Marlene’s meatballs. They were one of the first recipes she suggested when I started collecting family favorites.
Her sour cream cookies have always been super popular. They are soft, not too sweet and super delicious.
Her carmelettes are a favorite with her girls at Christmas time. They are a rich buttery oatmeal dough with caramel and chocolate in the middle.
But my favorite has always been her fudge icing. It is perfect for pouring over brownies or rice krispie treats and can easily be made into a hot fudge sauce.
