"This was a pretty good recipe. I doubled it and the only thing I didn't add was the sugar. I served it with tortillas--it was nice to have something other than chicken or beef. Some family members added sour cream, tomatoes, lettuce, etc to make a soft taco. Next time I make this I will just serve it over rice."

"This was awesome. A very nice change from all the other pork recipes. I used pork stir-fry meat and increased it to 1-lb. I kept the spices the same amount, increased the water to a cup, 3 tbsp. tomato paste, skipped the sugar, and increased the salt to taste, about 1/2 cup whipping cream. I had it with rice so wanted more sauce. Husband loved it, wants it in the regular rotation, and the kids ate it too. Will make it again."

"The description mentions rice. Don't see it in the recipe."
