Assemblage Difficulty: 5 out of 10


  • 1 pan meatballs
  • 8 oz. mushroom broth
  • 1 quart ginger slaw
  • 2-2oz. dressing for slaw
  • 1 large bag noodles
  • 1 large bag veggies

  • Mushroom broth can either be heated over medium heat on the stovetop or in a microwave safe container stirring every 30 seconds until 165 degrees.
  • Heat a large fry pan over medium high heat on the stovetop until a drop of water sizzles and beads up, add 2 tablespoons neutral cooking oil. Once oil shimmers (not smokes) put veggies gently in to the pan being careful not to overcrowd. Saute until heated through and to desired degree of doneness. Turn down the heat add a couple tablespoons of water to deglaze the pan by scraping against the bottom of the pan with a spatula to remove some of the caramelized brown bits. Add chop suey sauce to pan, loosen with more water if desired.
  • Heat water over high heat on the stove top in a large pot, once boiling add noodles, cook 3-4 minutes or desired degree of doneness, then drain.
  • Toss dressing with the slaw.
