"This was excellent, very juicy... Will leave out the onions when fixing for a crowd since some people seem to really hate onions. Will saute onions and have on the side. Am fixing for a crowd for Super Bowl 46."

"chili sauce,worcestershire sauce,mustard,ketchup all have enought sodium in them. No salt is really needed plus it is much healthier for you without the added sodium!"
