LOVE this recipe. I add mushrooms and potatoes, but otherwise, it's the same. DELISH!

This was really good!!!! The ingredient combo sounded funny to me- but based on the few reviews, I went for it. I did make a change- I dislike onions (especially a whole cup of them!) so I completely left them out. Otherwise- I followed the recipe! I did have to put a lid on mine about 20 minutes through as I noticed when it was simmering that I was "losing liquid"- it was evaporating on me. So I had to add some water to give more liquid. After I put the lid on, it was good! Both hubby and I really enjoyed it!! It was a unique taste- very very good! I would definitely make it again. Thanks!
