These were pretty good. My husband thought they might be a little too sweet, so next time I will probably put only 1 T of brn sugar. But they disappeared very quickly even with the complaint of too sweet. I served these on a toasted sesame seed bun with more onion and mustard and some baked onion rings. They were good. Will difinetly make them again.

Since a few people thought this recipe was too sweet, I had a correction made, and adjusted the brown sugar to 1 tablespoon instead of the original 2.

This made for a satisfying, quick dinner that was very easy to make. DH and I found the balance of lemon juice and brown sugar to be tasty, but likely a little less sugar wouldn't harm the dish at all. I did not use the Accent as MSG makes me dizzy; I just sprinkled a little salt in the dish. I might add chili powder next time to jazz it up, but DH and I both enjoyed this as it was, served over toasted hamburger buns. Hardly any leftovers!
