Loved this, on weight watchers at the moment and came out very low points for something so tasty. Served with stir fried carrots, broccoli and mange tout with sesame oil and noodles. This is going to become a regular at our house.

Very, very nice, the only change I made was changing the chinese spice for ground allspice as that is all I had. Also used boneless pork chops - it was delicious, served with stir fried frozen rice with red & yellow peppers.

Fantastically easy, quick and suprisingly tasty - ideal for a mid-week dinner. Will become a firm favourite.

Really nice, simple and quick. Being a student i love recipes which don't involve much mess and this one was a beauty. Add some green chilies for an extra kick.

Just a few ingredients, really easy to make, but the result is fantastic. I added a bit more salt to the sauce and also a bit of water before serving. The combination of the spices was incredibly tasty and the pineapple gave it a great kick. We had a plain rice as a side dish. Definitely 6 out of 6 :o)
