This recipe brought me back to my U.S. Navy days in the early '60's. I thought it was very close to the S.O.S we would get on my ship, although I thought the original stuff was a little more fluid. My tastes are a little different now so I chose to spice it up a little with Louisiana Hot Sauce. Next time I will also make some home-fried potatoes to go with it. Very good!
