My husband was Lithuanian. He loved my cooking! especially this dish. This was his mothers Wisc. recipe, from the thirtys. A restaurant in Chicago, that served this wonderful dish was Sharko"s, on W. 63 St. Closed in the 90's. But I think they had another one in Villa Park IL.??? I have many Polish and Lithuanian recipes, from his wondewrful family. This is one of the best.
