“Whenever a friend of mine from college comes to visit, we always stay in one night and cook a fabulous meal for ourselves. This was the product of one of our cooking extravaganzas. The sauce is absolutely fabulous, so make sure you have some bread on hand to soak it all up, or serve with mashed potatoes and use it as a gravy.”
