A trip to the Asian market, a blast of arctic air, a deep need for some comfort food...without any one of those things, this recipe may not have existed. As I headed into work this morning, leftovers in tow, I was terribly grateful for the perfect storm that created this recipe.

*Note: If you don't have an Asian seasoning on hand, mix 1.5 tsp. of garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper with 0.5 tsp. of crushed red pepper and ground ginger. —Stephanie
