Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker American Chop Suey is a classic comfort food made with macaroni, ground beef, onions, and bell peppers—then loaded with mozzarella and finished in the oven until golden brown. This easy-to-make meal comes together quickly and makes a big enough batch to feed a crowd.
Jennifer here again! Recently my son was talking with my mom about how much he loves ground beef. So she sent me a link to American Chop Suey and said we should create an Instant Pot recipe for it.
What Is American Chop Suey?
I’d never heard of American Chop Suey before, but it turns out that it is one of those classic comfort foods that goes by a different name depending on where you’re from:
Beefaroni, macaroni and beef, chili mac, Johnny Marzetti: whatever you call it, this stuff is delicious. … This is a New England classic that ought to be eaten everywhere comfort and ease are appreciated.
It is made with macaroni noodles and ground beef in a thick tomato sauce. It’s similar to American Goulash or a made-from-scratch version of Hamburger Helper (aka hamburger mac). For some reason, growing up, my dad always called it “Goo-flop.”
