      Eveyone one just loved this dish. I added potatos and carrots instead of the celery. I also doubled the liquid (cider and molasses), and the cornstarch mixture at the end.

      Very good! I served with Sauteed Mushrooms #28766 over the top and it really matched well! (We were not crazy about the sauce from the meat -- I will try apple juice next time instead of apple cider). Thanks so much for the recipe!

      Very good! I reduced the molasses to one tablespoon because I thought two might be too sweet for our taste, and it was just the right amount then. The meat was tender and moist, not at all dry. I'll make this again. Thanks for sharing!
