    Awesome recipe. The smell as it cooks is heavenly. And the taste is sublime! Thanks for sharing  -  05 Aug 2015


    I thought this was amazing. I didn't have the Caraway seeds though, so had to sub...used half celery seed and half cumin seed. I also added a bit of garlic powder and some black pepper, and used EVOO rather than Veg. oil. And we used the charcoal grill: about half hour one side, flip, another half hour or so, check temp. We planned on having leftovers, but we ate it all right away. It was amazingly juicy and a ton of good flavor. Will be making this on a regular basis. I am going to buy caraway seeds today, so I will use it next time. I am sure it will be just as good!  -  14 May 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was absolutely delicious! I put all the spices in my small food chopper & made gravy with the drippings, chicken broth & some flour thickening. No other spices needed except maybe a little pepper. I'll definitely make this one again - next time for company.  -  09 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
