    Really good, will definitely be having this again. Didn't deviate from the recipe, except to garnish with a bit of random coriander. The savoury onion taste really complemented the sweetness of the orange.  -  05 Oct 2013


    Altered ingredient amounts. I added diced and shredded cabbage for the last 15 minutes. The orange flavour permeated the cabbage rather than the other way around and so- a new way to get vegetables into my husband!  -  19 Jul 2009


    You really can't go wrong with this recipe. It's super easy to put together, makes the whole house smell great, and tastes even better! I've made it a number of times since finding the recipe a few months ago. In fact... it's in the oven as we speak!  -  15 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
