MY REVIEW

A very satisfying dish for a busy day. Next time I will use a little less sugar, just personal taste.

Super easy and fast. Could substitute any kind of sausage or even use chicken. A little sweet for me but that can also be changed. Definitely serve over rice.

Very, Very tasty. Even my 1 yr. old ate it up. We also served it over rice to make it a heartier meal.

I think the steak sauce gives it a little zip. Love the recipe because it is quick and flavorful.
