Great recipe! We loved the perk from the balsamic vinegar & sherry. The sauce is the star and I was glad to have enough to spoon onto rice. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

This is a great dish! Nice and spicy, good with the vegetables. Next time I'll add more soy sauce as we like that flavor. Thanks for posting this recipe!
