LOVE this recipe Uncle Bill. I had used recipe#24232 and wanted to try it out. Boy did I choose a winner - can't believe I'm lucky enough to be the first to try it. It's so easy and fast to make and the flavors are unusual, but wonderful; we served with steamed white rice and served the gravy over it all. YUMMY!! Thanks so much for posting.
