Our family favorit dish. This was so hard to measure as Memere only showed me how to make it with a pinch of this and that. She was 91 and passed away at 99. I am the only one to get this recipe. So bare with me on the pinch's. I have not tried this with other meats.Please remember it's your taste, It was the only way for me to make this. But was well worth it.
