OUTSTANDING! I used regular black pepper instead of cayenne. Made for ZWT 7.
Mmm this was scrumptious, I am sorry I had no green peppers so I had to make do with red but I think it would of been better with green so next time. I did cook mine for a bit longer as my meat was a bit tough, we like it melt in the mouth soft which it was. I did put a wee bit more pepper in and it gave it a nice kick I will definitely make it again it was yummy. Thank you for posting. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
