A quick and easy, delicious way to serve pork! Can be served over a bed of chopped romaine for a low-carb meal, or noodles for the traditionalists. The oil you use will make all the difference: the peanuttier the better; an obscure brand from the ethnic section of the supermarket is usually a better bet than one of the cheaper, mass-market varieties.

This was really good. It was a little too hot for me but hubby loved it. I didn't add the veggies and it was great served with the "poor man's rice" from this site. Great dinner...thanks for the post. Read More

OMG this was waaay to salty! I always use low sodium soy and even then this was extremly salty. I guess it would have helped if i used low sodium chicken broth too. Needed more peanut butter and cornstarch to thicken it up a bit at the end. Will not make this again. Read More

Great dish! The pork was very tasty; I added fresh veggies instead of frozen powdered ginger instead of fresh ginger and I left out the cashews. It was still a hit for myself and my husband! Read More

This was pretty good. I used low sodium soy sauce & low sodium chicken broth & left out the pepper flakes because I have small children. Next time I will use regular chicken broth because it needed a little more salt. Very quick & easy. Read More

Nice idea - and the final dish was really good - but the sauce as written was WAY too salty for me. I ended up adding quite a bit of coconut milk to it to calm it down. Otherwise the recipe is good - especially using fresh veggies but you gotta cut down on the soy. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was very tasty. I didn't have chicken broth and used water in it's place. It was a bit salty so I added a little milk at the end to cut the salt and make a more gravy-like sauce and I served it over rice which I did not salt either...it was very good... Read More

I thought this was just OK. The only changes I made were the low sodium soy sauce and the low sodium chicken broth that every other reviewer had mentioned and I used fresh broccli carrots sugar snap peas and red pepper instead of frozen. My husband and I still thought this lacked in flavor. We were expecting a much more peanuty flavor. Read More
