"Simple recipe, but just too much onion flavor for my family. Maybe replacing the milk in this recipe for coconut milk would help balance the flavors. Won't be a repeat in my kitchen though."

"Excellent recipe! My husband and one year old son gobbled it up. Like a previous review stated, there didn't seem to be enough sauce so the next time, I will make more of the sauce. I served it over some rice that I had cooked w/ some peas and carrots mixed in and it was great!"
