1 Tablespoon lard or solid shortening
1 and 1/2 pounds pork cut in half-inch cubes
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 large Spanish onion, diced
3 cups chopped celery
3 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 Tablespoons molasses

16 ounces canned Asian vegetables, drained and the liquid set aside
1 cup liquid drained from canned sprouts and canned mushrooms or vegetables
1 or two cans of chow mein noodles
Preparation:
1. Dust meat lightly with flour seasoned with the salt and pepper.
2. Heat lard or shortening in an empty pressure cooker and brown the meat in batches in the hot smoky lard or shortening, then add the onion, celery, soy sauce, molasses, and the liquids from the canned vegetables.
3. Cover and set rocker on top and when there is a steady rocking, cook ten minutes, remove from the heat, and let the pressure cooker cool of its own accord.
4. Then open the pressure cooker, add the drained vegetables and heat them through before serving on the chow mein noodles. Note: Serve with chow mein noodles on bottom, steamed white rice on that, and the chop suey from the pressure cooker on top.
