I was pleasantly surprised with this meal. It is very nice and so simple. I did add juice of a lime to add a bit of sourness to it, but that is my personal preference..

Made this for myself and my parents. It was absolutely delicious, we all really enjoyed it. I will definitely make this again. Served with Chinese style kale as suggested. I didn't make any changes to the recipe, it was perfect as it is.

I cut the meat in small pieces and I used Teriyaki. I became a little bit hot, but great.

Had for tea this evening, I may have over reduced the sauce as there wasnt as much as shown in the picture. Still very tasty and a real winner with my 9 year old son, served it with basmati rice, french beans & sprouting broccoli. Yum!

I also substituted chicken for the pork, and also fresh pineapple for tinned. Also added some onions and big, flat mushroom pieces ... Wonderful flavours and a very nice change for our chicken supper. Very tasty and very easy to make. Highly recomended.

Good recipe, the sauce gives an excellent taste to meat. I also loved the fact it was quite spicy thanks to chili powder, nom nom!
