… on here but I really needed to make an exception to this recipe. Lately I’ve been almost craving it & it’s so easy & delicious! I found it @ Taste of Home recipes & the original recipe is from Julia Bushree. Click here for original recipe.
Anyway back to the recipe. I’ve tweaked it a bit for us. Little things like less garlic (it upsets Hubby’s tummy) & I’ve added things like jalapenos & zucchini for taste & just because I had them. So a few photos to wet your appetite & remember that you can control the amount of spice you put in.
The cast of characters…
a couple of closeups…
This is what it looks like after you add all the ingredients…
& finally the finished product. Look @ how juicy & yummy that is. I really wish you could all smell how absolutely delicious my house smells. Oh & you serve it over rice. I like brown but Hubby prefers white. Guess what? I win! I don’t even buy white rice! bwa, ha, ha, ha, ha!!!
