MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2013

"I don?t understand the comments about the meat being bland. You eat the meat with the sauce because the sauce is flavorful. If you marinade the meat it could fight with the flavor of the sauce. I think this is a wonderful and easy recipe as is."

MY REVIEW

"Tried this recipe last night. Really enjoyed it. The cranberries plumped up in the sauce. However, I think I will cut down on the amount of mustard I use. It was a little too strong of a mustard taste for our taste. Otherwise, very easy to make. Will definitely make again."

"I'm not rating this recipe because I haven't tried it yet--plan to, though! I'm just replying to a comment by autiger02trey. I am thinking that an orange/chile marmalade I made, mixed with a little broth, might be a good marinade. I like orange and cranberries together. I also think the teriyake marinade sounds good!"
