    The concept is there.. missing the balsamic vinegar though... which is one of the key components to the sauce. I'm not sure if you're the one who came up with this, since I have seen the same exact thing on different websites.. but just wanted whoever who reads this to know its missing balsamic vinegar. But the concept of the sauce is correct.

    I first had this in the Sacramento Resteraunt and had to come home and make it. I followed this to the exact recipe here and loved it. The meat was cooked to perfection, the glaze was excellent, enjoyed the great aroma of the glaze as I ate each mouth full. Rick Rivera, Chef at another Italian Resteraunt (5 stars)EZ to make. Impress your friends!!


I am originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota and moved to Ohio in 1978. It was quite a culture shock going from the city to living next to the Amish. I spend most of my time cooking, cleaning and caring for my four kids. I have abandoned cookbooks and now cook from favorite, wilted recipe pages and the internet. I fell in love with my Italian family recipes (Scavo, Rotella, Scalzo, Micelli, Grande, Gigliotti) and my Mom's homecooked meals.
