Loved this!! Fantastic flavor! I used ground pork and dried cilantro. I'm not a cilantro fan, so I just added some to the meat mixture whilst it cooked and didn't add any extra for a garnish. I bought a jalepeno for this, but whilst cleaning out the spice cupboard looking for the Chinese 5-Spice (I'm the Imelda Marcos of spices - hehe) I found some those dried red chilies they use in Chinese I used a couple of those instead. I also used liquid stevia instead of sugar, it's supposed to be actually good for you...

I'm curious though, what would you serve as a low carb side dish with this recipe?
