Very easy to make, took roughly 1:30 to reach correct temp. The tomato sauce with balsamic vinegar was a bit bland, so I added some balsamic vinegar dressing instead, gave the sauce some character. I enjoyed it very much.

This recipe is fantastic! It also heats up well the next day. I am not a red meat eater, so this is a perfect alternative. My husband and I both love it.
