Oooooo, that looks good! And it really looks easy, which is always a plus.

Is that a 14" dutch you're cooking in? I see that there's no liquid in the recipe. Do you get enough juice to make gravy? The people that I cook for must always have gravy.

What do you normally have for a side dish, if any?

It is a 12" dutch oven. Yes, there is enough juice to make gravy if you want, I didn't so I can't say how it tasted.

For a side, I usually fry up some potatoes or have a salad of some kind.

Enjoy! Debbie
