I found this recipe on the Pillsbury website. I had everything on hand, so made it. How easy! I felt the red pepper sauce made it a bit more full-bodied than I prefer, but it was good, nonetheless.
I kept the original instructions, but I prefer to pre-heat a stainless steel pan on a higher heat, then reduce when the meat is put in.
