Perfect! The meat is very well seasoned, tender and moist. A quick meal dish that tastes like it took hours to make. This was served on a bed of steamed brown rice with Quick Cabbage Stir-Fry Asian Style (Quick Cabbage Stir Fry Asian-Style).

This recipe was spicier than I expected. I was expecting a more "soy" flavor. I used pork steaks instead of pork tenderloin. I prepared aparagus and teriyaki rice to go along with my Chinese themed dinner. The kids and I were very pleases with the end results and I will probably make this again leaving out the ground red pepper. Thanks Nancy. Made for PLEASE REVIEW MY RECIPE SEPT-OCT 2013.
