My mom has a similar recipe in an old cook book of hers, but I have added more seasonings and of course, the meat. It is not a fast dish to make, but it is well worth the time it takes. All of this is really to your liking, and if you wish to add more, go ahead. I prefer a more sweet and tangy sauce with lots of flavor. This is great for freezing and makes plenty of left-overs if you have a small family. If you have a large family, probably not.
