      A very different and unusual dish! I found it very tasty. I am serving it as a side dish to a nice piece of braised steak. Combining an Asian side with a different kind of a meat dish. It is a nice compliment to the steak.

      Great base recipe and I'll definitely be making it again. I think it needed more onions and some spices. I agree it is great for grilling, the charred onions are supper good! Made for ZWT6 by a fellow Looney Spoon.
