Story Behind this Recipe

There was a special 100 g = 100 yen sale for albacore tuna. Isn't that cheaper than meat?!
So I made a recipe that usually requires meat and used the tuna instead.
My husband didn't even realize it was tuna!
Instead of oyster sauce, it tastes great if you use ginger soy sauce.
