A very nice tasting recipe. I doubled the recipe without any issue. I do wish there was a bit more sauce to the dish as mine was rather thick. I think next time I may add some fresh pepper to the mix too. Served with white rice and broccoli. Well received by the family. Thanks loof! Made for 123 Hit Wonders tag game.
This was good and had a refreshing taste with the addition of the oranges. Made as directed however left out the red pepper flakes (we are wimps). I think it needed a little salt or garlic salt or something on the meat, but otherwise we really enjoyed this. Made for Photo Tag March 2010.
