This was a big hit-- awarded two thumbs up by the whole family. My daughter loved the meat, little carnivore that she is. ("Honey, what do you want for your birthday dinner?" "Meat!") My husband and I liked the sweet and sour fennel and sauce-- the fennel stayed crunchy and was a nice little accent with the meat. This preparation would probably also be good with chicken breasts. A good, easy weeknight supper.
