The recipe sounds very good.

But I'm a little lazy, I just slice accross (rounds) about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick slices.

I do every thing else the same except no salt - I can't have salt.

And depending how thick you slice it, you may need to cook it a little longer.

Does anyone know the WW point value of each serving?
