These are so great, the marinade is delicious and very easy to put together and I made it just as directed. I made it for Everyday is a Holiday Tag and it is a definite keeper.

Totally delicious was our verdict, my Husband just looked at me and said this one is a keeper the flavour is wonderful, I followed the recipe exactly but only had 1 tablespoon of sambal Oelek left but it was hot enough for us. We served it with new potatoes and salads actually I would give it 5 1/2 stars but the rating does not go up that far.
