    I use lemon juice instead of apple cider vinegar.

    Dry, chewy and the vinegar in the sauce was overpowering. The garbage disposal got this one. Will not make this again.

    Excellent! I added some water/corn starch mixture when there was about an hours left to thicken the sauce.

    Instead of salt I add 1 tblsp chili powder what a kick it gives but not overpowering. Maryanne
