    Made it healthier. Delicious!! Tender, juicy, perfect! Served it over rice. This pork has a flavour that's richly sweet but balanced by the saltiness of the soy sauce. I did use "light" soy sauce because I watch sodium intake. Will definitely make this again soon.  -  08 Oct 2008


    Used different ingredients. This recipe turned out great. I didn't have sherry so I used apple juice. All the flavours worked nicely together, and the meat was so tender. I used the leftover meat and sauce in stir fry the next day....delicious!!  -  08 Oct 2008


    This recipe is so easy, yet so elegant. This can be served for a special occasion. I had to print and hand out several copies.  -  08 Oct 2008
