    I love this recipe! The first time I made it, my husband said he could eat it every day, but I'm limiting him to once/week! We don't add the cherries - too sweet for our tastes. Tastes great without them!  -  11 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent mariade. Easy and flavorful. I didn't even watch the proportions-- just threw together in a plastic bag, dropped in meat and let sit overnight.  -  26 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Delicious marinade. We used new potatoes instead of cherries and mushrooms and that was very good too.  -  28 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
