My father got very sentimental when I first made this dish for him. His father, who was originally from China, was apparently a very good cook and organized Chinese banquets in Jamaica, where my father was born. This dish reminded him of the meals Grandpa would make.

The remaining sauce in the pot may be frozen and used for the next time you make this delicious dish. You can also use it to flavor stir fries or as a table seasoning for my congee recipe at breakfast.
