Everyone raved! This is such a simple dish, yet very well recieved. I cooked the potatoes a bit different, making this a 1-pan meal. I diced the potatoes small, and used goosefat for the oil. I heated the goosefat in my large skillet, added the potatoes (seasoned with S&P). Covered and let them steam in the oil for about 20 minutes, turning occasionally. When they were semi-tender, I removed the cover and added the remaining ingredients, tossing every so often until done. My nephew has already asked me to make this again. Thanks for a keeper recipe. :)

WOW This was delicious! I also used one onion instead of two because mine was rather large. I also used an extra clove of garlic because in this house theres never too much garlic, lol! Fantastic recipe, thank you!
