"This recipe has earned a permanent spot on my list of go-to meals! Couple subs I made are- I use jellied cran. sauce instead of whole berry and one of those lunch-size pineapple cups instead of juice and tidbits."
"The sauce was good. I made it without the peppers and served it over white rice. Both my kids ate it without a complaint. I count that a success!"
"Sauce was a hit! I used thin pork loin chops and simmered in the sauce on the stove while the rice was cooking. Served over the rice."
"Very very good. Pork was tender, sauce was perfect. We had it over rice."
