"This is just plain down home delicious!!!!! I couldn't find ground pork, so I cut a pork roast in little pieces. I've made it twice and it was so good!"

"Everyone, kids and adults, loved this comfort food. It took a while to prepare for the first time, but I will know what to expect next time around. The pork could easily be replaced with another ground meat, or left out all together to make a delicious all vegetable meal."
