I'm pretty impressed with the extreme preciseness of the directions in this recipe. I can almost see you cooking this! It was pretty good, although I used less pepper because I'm quite the wimp. I gave it 5 stars for great directions but 4 for flavor. A little too something for me. Tangy maybe? But I did like it. You should post more recipes, you're good at it.
