This dish came out very well much healthier than breaded and fried pork pieces. The flavor was great but I also recommend putting the onions in sooner if you like really tender onions. Read More

I'm with other reviewers. This was bland and lackluster. I had to add more soy sauce to "kick it up just a notch " but would not make it again. Read More

super simple and great tasting...kept the ingredients the same but altered the cooking directions...cut the peppers bigger more like the size of the onion wedges...put all the sauce ingredients together to sit while the pork was browning...cut cooking time down to about 20 min. total and the pork was not dry but juicy and the veggies were crisp tender...by the time the rice was done the pork & veggies were done....this is a keeper!! Thanks!! Read More

This is so easy and smells and tastes delicious! It is especially good because while one part is cooking you can prepare the next part. I would also recommend mixing wet and dry ingredients together separately before adding to the pan. Read More

Tempted to give this 5 s because my 12 year old son said "This is good!" Easy easy easy. I used boneless pork rib Knorr's pork gravy mix (because that's all I had on hand) and added a can of water chestnuts and cocktail (aka baby) corn. Served it with whole grain noodles. A crowd pleaser. Read More

Quite a few of the other reviews state that the recipe has no flavor. I don't agree. I did sub real garlic for the garlic powder but I thought it burst with flavor and the friends at my dinner party raved about the taste. I've had to email the recipe several times today. Read More

Very easy to put together and tasted great. If you don't have dry gravy mix (eg. Bisto) use 2 tbsp 1 tsp cornstarch since that's the main ingredient in a dry gravy mix. Next time I may add some mushrooms. Served with brown rice. Read More
