MY REVIEW

Easy and unbelievably good. I didn't have chicken broth but white wine worked perfectly. All 6 family members give this a unanimous thumbs up.

MY REVIEW

This was fantastic. I've made LOTS of different things over the past few months following recipes online, trying to find meal ideas that I really like. This is possibly the nicest one yet, def the best way I've eaten pork! I did double everything because made for four, all except the maple syrup because didn't want it overly sweet. Had it with mashed potatoes and vegetables, lovely! :)

This was SO delicious! I doubled the ginger-maple sauce which was extra tasty.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2009

I found that the sauce burned the first time I made this. The second time I made it, I waited until the internal temperature of the meat was 150 degrees before I put the sauce on the meat. Then the sauce did not burn. Either way, my significant other thinks this is the best meal he has ever eaten!!
