This dish is a bit of a namesake as basically when eaten, I got the comment that it was “not visually appealing” thus it was a “poor man” who had to eat it. Of course there is absolutely nothing wrong with the dish itself, it just slightly disintegrated when I cooked it… Continue reading “Poor Man’s Beef”
Stir-fried salmon and soy beans are something that I’ve had before. However, attempting to stir-fry salmon was one feat I didn’t conquer so well.
