One of the great things about this recipe is you can totally change up the protein .... substitute shrimp, pork, ham, Spam, tofu or even go meatless .... you can add whatever veggies you have on hand and if you like, add pineapple and/or ginger! I could eat this stuff every single day and never get tired of it!
