    This really didn't please anyone in my family. I readily admit that I'm a novice at preparing tempeh, but, even with following the directions to the T, everything was quite bitter. Not our cup of tea, I guess. - 6/28/08

    If I can find tempeh will definitely try this as we are into one meatless dinner aweek already and going for 2. We have already cut red meat down to perhaps once or twice a month, eating manily chicken and fish. This recipe sounds VERY interesting - 9/6/10
