"Smelled wonderful, pork was fork tender. I did feel it was missing "something"--hubby added a bit more salt and he thought that "fixed" it--I'm not sure. I did not make the gravy but just served the sauce over the rice I made to go with it."
"I made this for dinner tonight . Very easy to put togeather. It had an excellent taste and was tender. I have never been able to make gravy and unfortunately I still can't. I followed the directions but my gravy never thickened. Any suggestions ? I still rated this s five because I'm sure the gravy was something I did wrong all in all an excellent meal."
"This was very tender and moist. The gravy was a little different and it was great. I was gone longer than 5 hours, but my pot automatically goes to "keep warm" after the time set and even after about nine hours total (four at warm), it was still perfect. I did leave out the salt when using regular soy sauce."
"Didn't make the gravy but it smelled so good while cooking and tasted just as good."
"The ingredient list kind of threw me but it was outstanding, we like lots of sauce so I increased the liquid ingredients and we had mashed potatoes, YUM. Even my fussy eaters asked for it again. Am going to fix this for my sister at our next visit, I know she'll love it too!!"
