This was really good, nice flavor. Nice way to cook pork. I think it needed more sauce, though, so next time I will add more limejuice and soy sauce. But the list of ingredients calls for 6 tablespoons of 2-inch pieces of green onion? How in the world do you measure 2-inch pieces by tablespoon? It would make more sense to me to say 6 green onions.

This was an easy and delicious recipe! I wanted some extra veggies so added snow pea pods. Other than that followed as written. The pork was moist and the flavor was great! Will make again!

This. was. delicious. The flavors all worked together so beautifully. I had to add more time to cook the pork (it was 1.5 lb) Would serve to company in a heartbeat. Make it, you won't be sorry.
