Wow, so easy and so good! I actually prepared this twice this weekend. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out delicious and tender. The next time, I did cook in the oven and the results were just as good. My nephew and his wife loved it as did I. Served with peas and mashed potatoes and was informed I could make this anytime :) Thanks for a keeper Dicentra!
