Here’s one fun fact you might not know about me. I was born in Taiwan. That’s right, I even have the “made in china” sticker to prove it (ok, I’m kidding about that part). I lived there until I was 8 years old. I got my good academic habits there, along with my love of seafood and my obsessive habit of eating everything I was served… my personal nutrition journey helped me get over that last one.
Now, I’ll be honest, I don’t remember much about the food there, but this is a recipe that my mom would make occasionally, even after we moved back to the US.
And while I can’t vouch for how authentic this recipe is, I can vouch for its deliciousness. This salty/savory combo is perfect over brown rice and served with a side of veggies like my spicy green beans (recipe coming soon)
What’s also great about this recipe is that it’s pretty much a one step process. Throw just a few ingredients in a pot, cover it, and let it stew, turning once or twice.
Yup, that’s it. Pretty simple recipe, but it is so yummy! Try it out, let me know what you think!
