"Made this recipe many years ago. So glad we fund it again. We prefer smoked sausage instead of the bratwurst in this one. Always have to double it, and there's never any leftovers!"

"This was okay -- the flavor was something different with the soy sauce and orange juice. We liked it all right, but I don't think I'd make it again."

"I ate 1 serving but through the rest away. I did not care for the soy mixture. I have never had a problem with soy in recipes in the past."
