This recipe may be considered somewhat vague in directions but it is so good with rice and gravy and uses fresh vegetables from your garden that it is worth trying. Grandpa always has this on his table – Delicious with roast, rice and gravy, eggs pinto beans, hot dogs, and hamburgers and is meant to be eaten cold.
