  1. I absolutely loved this delightful dish. However, I substituted balsamic vinegar with sherry and also added 2 teapoons of honey. The flavor just rocked! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. I made this for two with half the quantity of meat and two peppers, but rest of the ingredients for four, as I like more gravy sauce. It was a wonderful experience as the quantity of sauce for me was perfect. I will make it again definitely!
