I adopted this recipe after Mean Chef (IHHDRO) left the site. I have not yet had a chance to sample this, but will add my own comments when I do.

This is a very good recipe. I made it ahead of time and put it in the crockpot on low to keep. That allowed me to concentrate on the other dishes when dinner came!
