courtnaytyus 2 years agoVery good and very easy. We also added some extra seasoning - extra freshly cracked pepper and some season salt. Will try leftovers over rice.
AlbertsKitchen 2 years agoI also found this a bit bland, I added onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, celery salt, oregano, sea salt and additional fresh ground pepper. That will wake up this recipe!
