  • Amazing! I can't get enough of it! - 3/8/12

  • My friend and I made this without any spices (our fault ^^;) and it was a good base. I really think this dish has potential.

    And for those carnivore-wannabes among us, I would definitely try this made with beef broth and steak strips next time. Yummy :D
