It started with a recipe from a home cookbook that was eh... ok. My husband liked it enough for me to make it again...so I've been making it about Once a week and changing it here and tweaking it there... Well, I think I finally hit the recipe I think is worthy to share. I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think of it. Enjoy!

The prep work is a little labor intensive, but the end results are worth it. And it keeps well for reheating.
