Chow Mein Hotdish, also known as Minnesota Hotdish or Chow Mein Casserole is classic midwestern casserole comfort! This ground beef and rice casserole with creamy soup and a crunchy chow mein noodle topping, is super easy to throw together or can be made ahead and frozen!

Prep: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F/ 175 degrees C and spray the inside of a large casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Cook celery in ½ cup water in microwave (covered) for 4- 5 minutes until soft. Drain off remaining water.
Brown ground beef in large skillet with chopped onion over medium-high heat.
Add celery, tomato soup, mushroom soup, rice, ground beef with onion, and chow mein noodles to a large bowl.*I find it easier to do this in a separate large bowl, but you could do this right in the casserole dish if you don't want to dirty another bowl
Pour into prepared casserole dish.
Sprinkle on soya sauce.
Bake (uncovered) in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Serve warm.
Garnish with additional dry chow mein noodles, and soy sauce and green onions, if desired.
