I am a member of the Cooking Club. I occasionally test recipes for their publication. This is one that I was asked to test. Everyone loved it then and they continue to love it when I make it. It is so moist and has just a little different flavor than usual. The recipe calls for grilling, but I have also baked it in the oven.
