My family just loves this meal-in-one, including my husband, who is truly a meat-and-potatoes guy. The dish uses inexpensive ingredients to offer big flavor in a small amount of time.

"Great recipe. Two changes that I made was olive oil instead of the sesame oil and for the meat I used a Filet. I could have used a little more meat but otherwise this was very good and can't wait to make it again."
