    Quick & Easy

    This recipe is so easy to make it practickly makes itself, specially for a first-timer. Very delicious and it goes with other meats too. If you take the time to put the leftover of this sauce on a blender it makes a wonderful jelly spread. I added a dash of cinnamon for a twist
