This is my husband's favourite recipe. We found it in a magazine ad for Planter's Peanut Oil about 20 years ago, and have shared it many times with many people over the years. It is delicious on its own, or served with a side of pasta, rice or crusty bread. Bon Appetite!!

A fantastic new staple in my cooking repertoire. :) I used stewed tomatoes instead of the tomato sauce, and didn't have any didn't make a difference. It was utterly delicious over the brown rice I made with it. I also added a healthy amount of hot sauce to add a bit of spice - you could also add a bit of cayenne pepper instead if you like some spice in your food. Thanks for a great recipe!
