Pretty good. If I make this again I would add some seasonings to the pork. A flavor packet or two from Ramen noodles would really perk it up. I would also eliminate the raisins as having them in the mix was more of an oddity than a flavor enhancer. Read More

Kinda dry bland and crumbly. Looks beautiful though. It needs sauce. I added in vegetable stock and cornstarch to thicken soy sauce and a splash of sriracha. Not sure it's the best match for the dish but it's what I had on hand. Also added way more raisins than called for. Read More

I used sausages with the casings removed instead of ground pork and it turned out great. Definitely making it again. Read More

This was delicious with a couple of additions. Additional seasoning to the browning meat - I added some basil celery salt and additional pepper. Once the meat was browned and I added the onion and garlic back in I added about a cup of canned/diced tomatoes (with liquid) with a cup of chicken broth. I also added way more raisins than it called for. It was amazing way more flavourful than I expected for a quick dish. I'm definitely making again. Read More
