MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 20, 2013

These were delicious! I added a little more brown sugar because I like my sauces sweet and I am not a fan of vinegar. Everyone wanted seconds, which is a definite win in my house!

This was absolutely delicious!! Both hubby and I loved it! I did leave the rosemary out since I don't care for it, but it was perfect!

Sooo yummy!

Made this last night and it turned out better than I thought it would. I used white onion because that's what I had, but it was still superb!!! The sweet flavor the sauce takes on is so good. I know that balsamic vinegar gets sweeter and thicker when you cook it anyway, but the brown sugar and butter just adds that extra something special!
