“This recipe is from my late grandmother, who passed it down to my mother. And since my mother eyes the ingredients, I never quite got the exact amounts that would make it as perfect as my mother's. Used to make this all the time in college in large batches, reheating it in a toaster oven and serving it with a salad or white rice for a quick dinner during the week. Should've written down the amounts I had put in, but never got around to it - please post the amounts that work for you. I used to add MSG (labeled Accent), but stopped using it - didn't see a difference in taste. Time includes marinading time”
