    This looked & smell good, but did not have much flavor at all. Too many steps for an o.k. meal. Disappointing.

    I felt it needed more sauce, so I think I'll double the amount of sauce next time. Used regular soy sauce and preserves and cashews in place of peanuts. This is not only quick & easy but delicious!

    My family always enjoys this quick and easy to prepare dish. I only make a few changes to the original recipe. As another reviewer stated, I also use half the amount of meat. I also add a couple of cloves of chopped garlic while sautéing the veggies and sprinkle on some crushed red pepper flakes before serving.

    We loved this, it's a keeper. I made just as directed. My husband, "Mr. meat and potoes' guy" loved this. It's a "keeper"

    Very good!!! Halved the pork for the two of us but made full batch of sauce. I used toasted slivered almonds on top as I didn't have any peanuts.
