Editor's Note

To make this even easier, place the garlic into a bowl, and pour the tomato sauce into the bowl. Fill the tomato sauce can with soy sauce and pour it in the bowl, and use the can to measure out the sugar. Rinse out the can with sake and pour it in. Then proceed as stated in the directions.

I didn't like the flavor of this by itself but once I added bbq sauce it was very good. The pork comes out nice and juicy. Read More

We were not impressed with this. The meat didn't take on the flavor of the sauce more like all the flavor of the meat cooked out into the sauce. There was way too much cooking liquid and it was very thin / watery. The meat itself just tasted like over cooked pork. Read More

Just made this as part of our Christmas dinner. This was not the first time that I've mad an Okinawan pork dish. This time I omitted the tomato sauce and used mirin instead. It was a hit. Read More

Too much sauce & tastes too much like soy sauce. Pork didn't seem to take on any flavor. However I've never made a pork roast before so the bright side is this recipe gave me a simple place to start from though. Read More

I'm making this again today! (It'll be my second time making it.) It is really easy to make and has a nice flavor! The whole family enjoyed it last time! My picky eater even liked it! I'm going to serve it with rice and green salad. Read More

I didn't cook in slow cooker. In the oven for 40 mins per pound. My guess loved it. I will make it with chicken thighs also. Read More
