Made these for DD & DH one night for dinner and they really enjoyed them. I did have to leave the lid off while simmering in order to get the sauce to thicken up. The orange juice gave this a little bit of a different flavor, but it was good. Thanks for posting this recipe Kelly.

These were tasty and easy to make. Hubbie and I thought they were a little too sweet-we like things on the spicier side at
