Top Review by Chris Reynolds

The flavor of the sauce in this recipe is only so-so, and since the sauce makes this dish, I only gave the recipe three stars. There is also a problem with the recipe, also -- it calls for sherry in the directions, but there is none listed in the ingredients list. I can tell you that 1/4 cup is way too much, but I don't know how much one should use.
