"Very good...I used Kraft's Asian Ginger Dressing. Really good flavor. I like the coleslaw on it also."

"Our whole family loved this recipe! I did use a pork roast instead of pork tenderloins because I had one on hand. It worked great, but I did need to increase the cooking time to 8-9 hours. The slaw is crunchy and delicious!"
