MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 3, 2011

I made this tonight (served over white rice) and it was really good! Hubby and kids all liked it too. I doubled the recipe and added about 2 TBSP more brown sugar to make sure it was sweet enough for the kids...was very tasty! Next time I'm going to add mushrooms also.
