Thank you for sharing this quick and easy to make recipe, it was wonderful served ontop of steamed jasmin rice. It had good instructions and was a great use of contest ingredients. The flavors were excellent, bold, robust with a hint of heat. The meat was tender, the vegetables were perfectly cooked. We especially enjoyed the addition of the tomatoe in this dish. Good luck in the contest.
I thought this turned out well. It smelled wonderful cooking and the times were spot on. I appreciated that the meat was tender without being crockpot mush and the veggies retained some crispness. The finished dish was colorful too which is always a plus. The sweet was an under note, but there was room for a tiny more tart.
