Simple Chopsuey with Crispy Pork Skin

There are times we ran out of stock in the kitchen before our scheduled pamamalengke. Just like the other week, what's left in our refrigerator's crisper are cabbage, carrots and Baguio beans. On the other hand, freezer contains pork skin.

Since the three veggies are the main ingredient in cooking chopsuey, I did a very simple one. And to make a twist, I added crispy pork skin.

chopsuey, Easy recipe,
Chopsuey with Crispy Pork Skin



  • 1 small cabbage, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 8-10 pcs Baguio beans, chopped to about an inch long
  • 1 meduim-sized onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 tbsp water
  • cooking oil for sauteing
  • 1/4 kilo pork skin

Cooking Instruction:

  1. To make the crispy pork skin: Heat enough oil for deep frying. Randomly puncture the skin using fork then rub with rock salt. Deep fry the inner side first then flip until turns crispy.
  2. To make the chopsuey: Stir fry all the veggies until half-cooked. Add the evaporated milk and simmer for about 2-3 minutes. Add the cornstarch mixture and simmer for another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Serve with hot steamed rice

Serving size: 3-5
