I came up with this recipe when I was looking for something out of the ordinary to take to a family potluck. The compliments were overwhelming and I gladly shared the recipe.—Joan Crandall, Burlington, Connecticut

"I had to improvise slightly with this as I had no soy sauce, pepper sauce or mushrooms. I had everything else and here is what I did. I followed the recipe up until when I had to add the soy/pepper sauce. At that point, I added three packets of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning. Three was too much as it ended up on the spicy side but two would have been perfect. However, it turned out VERY nice indeed. I'm going to use another egg next time. Egg is a lovely touch and a tad more would be great. The rice ended up very soft and the meat nice and tender. Actually, everything ended up very tender!! I'm not even sure I want to go back and try it with soy/pepper sauce. I'm absolutely delighted with how it turned out using the taco seasoning and will be making it again next weekend."
