I just tried this recipe from Bon Appetit. I served it with Ozark Brown Beans. What a great meal!

I was about to add this to Recipezaar and saw your recipe. I added a dash of cayenne pepper and a few grids of fresh black pepper. Then baked it in a glass dish for 40 minutes. Came out moist, delicious, and perfectly browned. Yummm!
