I was just getting ready to post this recipe!!! I can't remember where I got it but it's a favorite for me! I slice mine a little thinner, though. Some people may say that it's a waste of a very expensive spice (I use a BIG pinch) but I have to differ...and this is even better reheated. The sauce gets thicker each time. A great thing to have in your repertoire! Thanks for the post!
