I know, I didn't have all the ingredients so I should not be rating this recipe. But I had pork chunks that I did not know what to do with. Didn't have wine vinegar, so used the white vinegar I had. Only had one hour to marinate the chunks in all of the ingredients. When the pork was well browned I deglazed the pan with some Lambrusco wine and reduced the sauce.. Served the mixture over Dreamfield pasta because my wife and I are diabetic and it does not raise our blood sugar.<br/>Even though my wife is picky about food she said: "This is a good combination." I agree. We both enjoyed this recipe.<br/>Thank you Michelle for a tasty recipe.
