From cutting and cleaning, to simmering and tossing it took me 3hrs. A testament to my culinary skills is that my son, who said after staring at the contents of this plate, "There's no way I'm going to eat that?" ¬After taking 2 bites, as is the house rule before rejecting any food, who said, "hey, this is good... this is really, really good!" And he didn't stop eating till there was a little bump on his stomach from cleaning everything off this 10" plate you see here.
Yes, it was yumm.
