I don't usually change ingredients the first time I make a recipe but I knew that putting soup in this would make it taste gucky so I put in a tin of diced tomatoes instead. It still didn't taste right. I think pork just tastes weird in a dish like this I don't know. Can't really put a finger on it. Read More
