This was a great dish to start out the New Year - delicious! I am always looking for simple dishes to make for weeknight meals and this one would work well. The prep was simple yet yielded a lot of flavor. With green beans and rye bread it would be an easy meal. Although it is great as it is, I would add a few ingredients for extra flavor next time I make it - a chopped onion, a sprinkle of caraway seeds and maybe a bay leaf. Thanks for sharing this one Colorado Lauralee.
