“This is one of my all-time favorite foods. I first had it at my best friends house in high school over 20 years ago. Her mother gave me the recipe and I have been making it ever since. I don't even like green peppers and I love them in this recipe. It is easy and the sauce is divine! For non-soy sauce/salt lovers--don't even try this recipe. The sauce is wonderful if you like the salty flavor of soy sauce, which obviously I do. For those that want a bland, non-salty light sauce, this is NOT the recipe for you! Look elsewhere! Enjoy!”
