I was a little skeptical of this recipe at first... the method just seemed a bit too crazy for me. But the more I thought about it the more I figured it was crazy enough that it just might work.
And work it did!
I've got to say, it was fabulous. And it is just about the easiest thing ever to make - such a small amount of work for such a great outcome! I love the added flavor from the peperoncini peppers. We made gravy from the pan drippings... ah-mazing. We all loved it!
