This recipe is one of only a few that was passed down from my Grandma Shaw. She passed away before I was born, but if the rest of her cooking was anything like this recipe, she was a good cook. This is just the basic recipe, but pretty much any vegetable can be added – mushrooms, water chestnuts, snow peas, carrots, broccoli – would all be delicious.
