MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 8, 2010

Didn't change any ingredients, but I grilled the tuna steaks instead of broiling them. I served the tuna steaks with the suggested Broccoli Salad and Barley Pilaf with Bacon. We enjoyed the combination of flavors very much.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 9, 2009

I made this with boneless pork loin chops and it is was fantastic.
