    very simple recipe to follow, I always wanted to make it, tastes just like my lola. -thank you  -  22 May 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    It was easy to make - and really tasty. Served with rice and french beans. The only suggestion I can make is I would cut back a tiny bit on the lemon juice (I had a pretty large lemon - maybe a smaller one would work better) Definitely will make it again.  -  10 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I baked this instead of putting it in oil. It was good but the meat was rally tough.  -  23 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
