      I like this recipe only because it's very close to a traditional Filipino dish called adobo. The only difference is using the same amount of asian vinegar as soy sauce instead of brown sugar and adding a bay leaf. Simple and very easy.

      This pork was a big hit in my house. I think next time I make this pork I am going to put it over the sesame noodles from the recipe Funky Chicken and Sesame Noodles.

      Wonderful, and easy. Nothing else to add. -- posted Apr 1, 2004 Update: I have made this so many times since I have posted my review! I came back tonight (while my meat is browning to make yet another go-round) to make sure I had given this five stars (I had). This recipe is so versatile. I have made it with onion powder & garlic powder, and even no onion at all - I prefer the original, although I now cut my onion *very* small since my kids are picky onion-haters. ;) I have also, at various points on my low-carb journey, used Sweet & Low Brown, Splenda with a dash of blackstrap molasses, and plain Splenda. Again, I prefer the original, but these substitutes are do-able. (I don't recommend leaving the brown sugar out entirely - I did once, and it just didn't have the right balance of flavors.) I usually don't find that my sauce stays thin. It usually cooks down and caramelizes beautifully. I have found that it doesn't do that when I double the recipe, and I don't like the result as much, so I try to use 2 pans to double this. I usually use pork country ribs. I guess that's about it, except to profusely thank MaeEast for posting such a wonderful recipe!
