Made for a great side and questioned myself why I hadn’t made a recipe like this prior. Came out delicious and tender with great flavor. So simple, but so good, proving that you don’t have to have a long list of ingredients to create a tasty dish. Thank you, Tisme, for sharing. Made it for Billboard and What’s on the Menu tag games.
