This wasn't a favorite in our house. It smelled wonderful while it was cooking, but there was just something that didn't work for us! It was a very easy recipe and I thank you for sharing it. Maybe I'll try the basic recipe again and tweak it a bit to make it work for us!!

Well, I have to say this is a definite 5 star here! Recipe served only 5 because they didn't stop. Two DD's had 3 sandwiches each and I lost count with DH! The meat was so moist and tasty! Definite keeper here, thanks Dancer^
