    Used different ingredients. Quick and easy, both for cooking and clean-up. I've made this several times already. On all occasions I added a small bit of soy sauce and worcestershire sauce to balance the citrus and dijon just a tad, and also added a dash of garlic salt to the recipe. Very tasty, and cooked on very low heat it comes out very juicy! Served it with white rice and steamed veggies.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. It's an o.k. taste, but definately not something to eat alone. I put it into a salad with mushrooms and honey mustard dressing. It wasn't too bad, but I think something else would go better with it than mushrooms.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Waaaaaay to dijon-y. I might try it next time with honey mustard instead. Far too tart.  -  29 Sep 2008
