In Canada, when we order chinese food, we always get this as an appetizer and I finally got this recipe right after much tweaking. It's flavour is right on and the pork is very tender. Does not include marinating time.

This was awesome! I didn't use it as an appetizer. The sugar balances out the pepper nicely. No one ingredient was overpowering. I took the marinade and, after boiling & adding about 1 T of cornstarch, used it as a sauce over the meat. Soooo good! I found that it takes much longer to cook than directed though. I didn't keep track of the total cooking time, I just kept poking it with my thermometer till it was 145 degrees.

This recipe was alright, but not what I expected; however, it was easy to make. I might make this again, but I might add some hoisen sauce or some more garlic. Thanks for sharing!

We had this for dinner tonight and everyone loved it. I am going to make some soup tomorrow with some of the leftovers. Thanks.
