Story Behind this Recipe

It was a holiday and everyone in the family was at home, but I only had time to cook in the morning! Then I thought that if I made two dishes with the same ingredients and the same prep work and made them at the same time, I could make lunch and dinner both at once.
They are both meat dishes, but if you feel like it you can use quite a lot more vegetables, and no one will complain!
