    This tasted delicious-I will definitely make it again! I used the George Forman grill and grilled it for about 15 min. because I didn't want it to be rare. - 2/3/09

    So good!!!! Loved it! Very flavorful without overpoweringly spicy. Great combo. Bonus at 200 calories this is makes it even more appetizing.

  • Very Good
    This was really easy to mix up! We used fresh garlic because obviously it's way better than from the jar :) Will definitely use this again--might rub in a little less though, because it's spicy and pretty salty! - 3/20/11

    I tried this recipe but made a few changes...made it with venison instead and also switched out the brown sugar for honey for a natural sweetener. It was so amazing! Husband and kid requested I make this often. Thanks for the recipe. - 1/1/11
