MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 25, 2013

This was good, but I made it with 1 pound of cubed boneless pork, a sliced yellow onion, a sliced green bell pepper, and a sliced yellow bell pepper. I tripled the sauce ingredients except for the brown sugar (which I doubled). I let it simmer for 10 minutes instead of 30 because of the meat cube size. We had enough sauce for our rice too.
