I remember my mom making this dish and me thinking it was a big deal and really a grown up party dish. I imagine it was the soy sauce and other flavors which were not in our day to day palate. This steak product is amazing and literally will have you wondering why you would ever buy steak. Served with jasmine brown rice and cilantro and lime and scallions for a great flavor burst. This dish speaks to me on alot of levels and is satisfying and very filling.
