"Looking for something new to do with pork, I decided to give it an international flavor," says Brenda Webb of Corpus Christi, Texas. "My love of Mexican and Chinese cuisines influenced this dish."

"I wasn't expecting this recipe to taste as good as it did! We used plain boneless pork chops instead of pork tenderloin and left out the water chestnuts. Really yummy!~ Theresa"
