This recipe has been kicking around for over 20 years. Back in the day, there always used to be the people that would come to the office and leave a stack of books and an order sheet. A week later they would return to see if anyone wanted to buy the books. There were always cookbooks in the mix and that is typically how I spent my lunch hours, pouring through the cookbooks and either photo copying the recipes or eventually buying the books. Because you know, back in the day, we used photocopiers and didn’t spend hours surfing the net.
I got this recipe from one of those books and unfortunately I do not know which cookbook it came from as it was photocopied with no legible reference besides my scribbling notes. The recipe has faded and been modified over the years. Once the kidlets came along, well it became a family favourite. So much so I now have to double the recipe to ensure there is enough for my family of four. We rarely have leftovers with this meal.
I like to serve it with brown rice or even noodles of some sort. Yes the kids pick out the green onions, but that’s kids. If you like things spicy add more chili flakes or even cut up a red chili and toss it in. I keep it simply spiced for the kids sake.
Let’s do it.
