"I made this last night and it was very good. I added extra ginger and garlic powder, but didn't have the coriander on hand. I will try this again."

"My family LOVED this!!! Hubby did it on buns like suggested but my daughter and I had it over rice and it was delicious! We also used a pork loin rather than shoulder or butt."
