"This was a really good side dish that I served with the Cranberry Pineapple Pork Chops from the same issue. The only change I made was to use chicken broth instead of water because I had an open can to use up."

"this is really good with instant brown rice. You have to cook it on the stove after it boils for 5 minutes. Great taste."
