This is a great recipe Chef Shadows! It is a lovely alternative to plain red sauce. I served it over egg noodles with a dollop of fat free sour cream and it was delicious! Kind of similar to Swedish Meatballs I thought. I love cranberries with a port sauce for beef tenderloin, so I knew I would love this one. And I did, thank you!
