Made it vegetarian. This is a wonderful recipe, however, I used tinned peas and made it just a couple of hours ahead of time. It keeps well for a few days. - 29 Sep 2008


Used different ingredients. This is a great recipe but trust me on this.... add 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar. Makes all the difference. - 29 Sep 2008


This recipe in general was good, but it was INCREDIBLY too much onion. it was all you could taste...and taste...and taste! I've made similiar recipes before and they were a big hit. This one would have been perfect with about 1/3 of the onion. - 29 Sep 2008
