I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
American Chop Suey
...in your mind.

American Chop Suey

Aka Macaroni & Beef, Beefaroni, Goulash - whatever you call it think of this as the world's greatest 'beef & macaroni.' And if that doesn't do it for you (and I can understand if it doesn't) just know it's a rich, hearty, super flavorful fantastic dish that can feed a bunch of people, or just you...multiple times. And everything happens in one pot. Serve it with something crispy, like grilled baguette or even tortilla or regular chips for some crunch.
