Reviews for Five-Spice Tuna
"Didn't change any ingredients, but I grilled the tuna steaks instead of broiling them. I served the tuna steaks with the suggested Broccoli Salad and Barley Pilaf with Bacon. We enjoyed the combination of flavors very much."
"I made this with boneless pork loin chops and it is was fantastic."
