Delicious and highly recommended for a weekday meal...total prep time was about 35-45 minutes! I halved the recipe (expect for the peppercorn and bay leaves) and that worked well. I think I over cooked the sauce because it became a very sticky caramelized coating but it was still very delicious and I will cook it this way the next time I make it.
