This was awesome! I didn't tweak anything on it and had plenty of sauce left when serving to use for dipping the egg rolls in. It was extremely tasty!

This is delicious! The sauce goes together quickly and adds such a wonderful flavor to the moist, tender pork roast. The leftovers are delicious chopped and added to homemade fried rice or stirred into cooked spaghetti and sautéed vegetables for a quick and easy lo mein.
We enjoyed every mouth-watering morsel. I know I'll be making this again and again.
