"This was a pretty good recipe. I doubled it and the only thing I didn't add was the sugar. I served it with tortillas--it was nice to have something other than chicken or beef. Some family members added sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, etc to make a soft taco. Next time I make this I will just serve it over rice."

"This was awesome. A very nice change from all the other pork recipes. I used pork stir-fry meat and increased it to 1-lb. I kept the spices the same amount, increased the water to a cup, 3 tbsp. tomato paste, skipped the sugar, and increased the salt to taste, about 1/2 cup whipping cream. I had it with rice so wanted more sauce. Husband loved it, wants it in the regular rotation, and the kids ate it too. Will make it again."
