Not a good choice to spend time making. We love stir fry but this went down the disposal.

It was ok. My son liked everything except the green pepper. I particularly don't like sweet food. I this for other people to enjoy.

Everyone loved it! In fact, I was asked if I made it from scratch! Very easy to do - esp., if you want a quick supper!

This recipe has earned a permanent spot on my list of go-to meals! Couple subs I made are- I use jellied cran. sauce instead of whole berry and one of those lunch-size pineapple cups instead of juice and tidbits.

The sauce was good. I made it without the peppers and served it over white rice. Both my kids ate it without a complaint. I count that a success!

Sauce was a hit! I used thin pork loin chops and simmered in the sauce on the stove while the rice was cooking. Served over the rice.

Very very good. Pork was tender, sauce was perfect. We had it over rice.

I added carrots and onions. Even my "picky" husband liked it :-)
