    Island-Style Beef Tomato

    I’ve had versions of this Island-Style Beef Tomato recipe in Chinese Restaurants, in Japanese Restaurants, in mom and pop places here and in the United States and they are all unique, all different.

    Not a single one with the flavors of this version I grew up with. The Chinese version, to me, is the most similar, but different of course.
