This was pretty darn good! I expected the meat to stay in the strips but it kind of fell apart into small bits, but still very tasty. I added a small amount of crushed red pepper to give a bit of a kick - I may try some sliced jalepeno or serrano pepper next time. I served as suggested with chappatis (#39198 Chappatis (Roti) by Ranikabani) and sangria (#245611 White Sangria by boomette1) - what a great meal!

With a Pierre Dance recipe and a Bev Ellis recommend - how could one miss! Yes another of the Pierre Dance recipes that proved to be a winner. Made as posted - used the best paprika I could find here in Saskatchewan - worked for me! And yes garden fresh tomatoes! The Jasmine rice - one of my favorites - the Sangria - I'm working on that! Thank you Pierre for posting those great recipes of yours.
