The correct name, in China, for this recipe is LEE GONE CHOP SUEY and is a Cantonese dish. It was first served to General Lee Hon Chung when he was in Japan about 74 years ago. It was too late in the evening to be served a regular meal. The chef combined all his leftovers in a stir-fry concoction. This new taste pleased the General so much it was named after him and became a favorite of his.
