MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 1, 2010

I absolutely was impressed by this recipe! My husband LOVED how filling and tasty it was! From a critical standpoint I would definitely add crushed garlic to the vegetable mix for more of a unique flavor with the A1 sauce. Definitely will be made again in our household.
