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! Read More

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. Read More
