I made this for my boyfriend and his buddy. My boyfriend took only one bite. He didn't like it. His friend said that he wasn't impressed with it but he at least cleaned his plate. I really didn't care for it either. I think I have to agree that it was alot of work but the taste didn't reflect it. I hate giving low ratings but I really feel that this recipe wasn't as good as some of your others. Sorry!
I found this recipe to be a lot of work with an average-tasting end result.
