Top Review by Staten Island Slovak

I made this tonight and it was fabulous! Very nice combo of flavors. I didn't do anything different, with one exception: At the beginning of the last 5 minute simmering step, I also added a tablespoon and a half of corn starch mixed in cold water to the pot to thicken up the sauce a bit (it was a little too liquidy for my preference), and I served it over yellow rice. I would imagine it would be good served over cooked egg noodles also... ~The Mad Slovak~
