Top Review by Chattes

This is delicious. The flavor was fantastic and the meat was so tender. I don't quite understand why there haven't been more reviews. The directions are easy to follow and the results were outstanding. I served this with rice- to soak up the gravy, but buttered noodles would be even better. Along with the rice, we had mixed veggies and a tomato/cucumber salad. A perfect meal for a cold winter evening. This is going in my "to do again" cookbook for sure.
