This was delicious! Thank you for sharing your yummy recipe. I did make some changes to suit our tastes. For the sauce I cut the salt way down. 2 tablespoons sounds like a lot to me (I would like to ask the recipe submitter if that is maybe a typo) so I used 2 teaspoons and that was a good amount for us. I also reduced the chili powder by 1/2 and that was plenty for us-I felt 2 tablespoons would make the sauce taste like chili powder only. I tasted the sauce before pouring it over the meat and it was wonderful so I was happy with the changes I made. I would suggest checking the temp of the meat about 45 mins into the cooking time - the meat was a tad overcooked but it was still a big hit with the fam! This paired perfectly with garlic sauteed spinach and mashed potatoes. Did I mention the sauce was delish! I think I will try adding a third kiwi next time!! yummmm Read More

I read all the reviews and decided to try it. It was hard to figure out what amount to put in so I downed the salt and chili powder as everyone said, and made it as the recipe called. I tasted it and wasn't too sure about it but my husband thought it was good. I thought the chili powder ruined it for me. But I won't make it again, I'll find or create one next time. Read More

Great sauce a nice mix of sweet and spice. I halved the salt and it was just fine. I think this would make an excellent sauce for pork chops as well and will be trying it again in the near future! Read More

The sauce on these ribs was very tasty. I liked that it uses kiwi which I haven't seen paired with meat before. Like others I reduced the salt and used 2 teaspoons. My only complaint is that some of the sauce cooked into a sugary rock onto the baking sheet and it was very hard to clean. Next time I would line the bottom of the pan with foil as well as over the top making a packet around the meat for easy clean up. Also I would like to try this recipe in the slow cooker to make the meat more tender. Read More

Delicious!!! I doubled sauce for 10 pounds of pork and I had plenty! Perfect balance of sweet and acid. Only changes were..I added half of a hefty bulb of garlic about a quarter tsp of crushed red pepper flakes oh and half a small onion all into the blender. Winner!! Read More

This was a hit with the whole family. I lined a cookie sheet with foil large enough that it would wrap around to complete the "loose cover." Made clean up a breeze! Read More

I tried this because a friend gave me a bunch of kiwis that I had no idea what to do with. All I can say is WOW! I wanted to put this sauce on everything! Friends were licking the bones clean then the plates then asking for seconds. It is pretty salty though so feel free to cut back on the salt and still have it taste fine. Read More

This recipe was very yummy! I made a few changes to the sauce: 3 kiwis a pinch of salt garlic powder (no cloves on hand) and half the chilli powder. I tasted the sauce before cooking and thought there was enough chilli powder in it - but after cooking I couldn't taste it. I would add the full amount of chilli powder next time. I lined a casserole dish with parchment paper (made clean-up a snap!) and cooked a pork tenderloin in the oven at 400F for 1 hour. It was delicious. However there is not too much taste of kiwi left after mixing all the ingredients together for the sauce. Read More
