    I prepared a smaller amount, but followed the preparation guidelines. What a great dish! Savory, succulent meat and a delicious sauce. Wonderful way to prepare an inexpensive cut of meat.

    Note: I recommend you change the portions/servings in the recipe calculator--one serving doesn't=1000 cal!
