"This was very good. The only thing I did different was to use 1T each of cornstarch and cold water to make the gravy a little thicker."

"Came out so tender and juicy, just wonderful! The only thing I'll change for next time is to include less vinegar, just because my family prefers it that way. Other than that, very yummy!"
