    I kind of goofed this one up, but it stilled tasted great. I was letting it simmer while I made up some other recipes for the freezer, and I guess I let it simmer too long. It dried up and burnt to the bottom of the pot (I had to use a pot because I don't have a skillet large enough for the recipe). My husband suggested making it with mashed potatoes to help soak up the juices. Sure tasted good, even with the burnt bits. :)
