"De loved the meat, but didn't care for the noodle mixture."

"Yum! My family loved this! Easy, different, and delicious! I added a bit of cornstarch to thicken the sauce, but followed everything else to a tee. I will definitely make this again."

"This recipe was so delicious! I am not much of a meat eater. However, this was tender and juicy and did not taste like pork. We also prefer our meat extremely tender so simmered this on low heat for 7 hours or so. The noodles were also terrific. There were tasty enough to be served as a dish standing alone, or perhaps be topped with other dishes like goulash or spaghetti. The only deviation from the recipe as written was the use of a low fat pork roast which I sliced myself. This goes in the family favorite recipe archives!!"
