Looks delicious and easy. I've saved it. Thanks!frankieanne in Somewhere loved it
I made this last night. I used brown sugar. It took quite a bit of time to cook the liquid down - about 20 minutes. They were good with rice! Thanks!frankieanne in Somewhere loved it
I don't know what to make of the short saute time for the onions. The raw onion taste really came out in the finished dish. I don't prefer it. Next time they get a good long saute. Otherwise it is an edible dish.
