Step 1


Combine soy sauce and brown sugar in a large zip lock bag or bowl and stir to combine. Add in the pork and stir to ensure everything is coated evenly.

Step 2


While the pork marinates, thinly slice the garlic and onion. Thoroughly rinse the bok choy and celery and thinly slice at an angle.

Step 3


Preheat sauté pan over high heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Once the oil starts to shimmer, add in the sliced onion, garlic, bok choy and celery. Sauté over high heat for 3 minutes, stirring and tossing constantly to ensure even cooking. If your pan isn’t big enough to fit all the veggies, work them in batches. Remove sautéed veggies and set aside.

Step 4


Add another 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pan and place back over high heat. Once the oil in the pan starts to smoke, add in the pork and marinade. Saute over high heat for 4 minutes. Once the pork is cooked, return as much sautéed veggies to the pan as can fit and reduce heat to medium.

Step 5


Combine cornstarch and ½ cup of water. Add cornstarch slurry to sauté pan and let boil and reduce down for 3 minutes. While the sauce thickens, cut the water chestnuts into matchsticks. At the end of the 3 minutes and in water chestnuts and sauté an additional 2 minutes.

Step 6


To plate, add half of the chop suey to a bowl and dinner is served.

    I did not find this recipe to be very flavorful. I suspect this was partly a result of me using 1 cup of water for the cornstarch slurry as indicated in the printed instructions instead of a half cup water indicated in the online instructions. But even reducing the sauce down to account for the extra half cup, the sauce was not particularly flavorful. The brown sugar and soy sauce marinade can only go so far in a dish with this many veggies.

    The Pantry SB needs to take better care of having their printed recipe included in the box match the online recipe. There were several errors in the printed recipe: calling the pork “chicken” at one point, suggesting there were bean sprouts included in the box (their wasn’t), and calling for 1 cup of water when seemingly the correct amount is a half cup.

    As my first meal using this service, this recipe made a poor first impression.
