My family is japanese hawaiian and I remember that my aunt used to make a dish similar to this when I was little. Naturally, instead of serving it over egg noodles or toast, we had it with sticky rice. I made this tonight and pretty much followed the recipe as is (I added the bullion a little late... I'm not a big fan and thought it would be fine with just the salt, pepper, worscheshire and an addition of garlic powder, but after a taste test, I realized that it was needed.) I sauteed some onions (I would have put them in, but the kids would have liked it that much less) on the side for my hubby and I because I figured he would want it jazzed up a bit and served a green salad on the side for all of us. My picky 6 year old gobbled it up and declared it the best thing I've ever cooked (last night I made chicken parmegiana from scratch... thanks a lot kid!) My 10 year old said it was great, but he's a foodie and loves just about everything. I really liked it and it brought back memories of my childhood, but my husband said it was "interesting" and that he couldn't get past the way it looked. He said that when he closed his eyes and didn't look at it, he thought it was good. Oh well, three out of four... overruled!
