Top Review by knittygrrl

This has become my family's most requested meal. They cannot get enough of it. Plus it's unbelievably easy to make. I did experiment with the time to marinate and found 24 hours is by far the best. It just melts in your mouth. The shortest time I marinated was 1/2 hour and it was still amazing.
