Another from the files of ‘we had it when we were away’ this was sweet and spicy with a good hot kick from the tabasco. This was also pre-prepared and frozen in its marinade for the trip. The original recipe was a from a very old microwave book but I altered it for the oven a bit, cooking meat in the microwave is still not something I’m really comfortable with although I have done it and been plenty pleased with the results on occasion. It was great in the oven though and took no work at all on the day, always a plus for the holidays!
