      I thought the meat tasted very nice. The marinade is good. My only problem is with the sauce, which I didn't care for very much. 4 1/2 stars would be more appropriate, but I'm not able to give it. I will use the marinade in the future when cooking pork. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.

      This is an OUTSTANDING pork recipe, & it's filed here to be made again & again!! I'm big on citrus so loved the delicate taste there, but have to admit that I cut back by half the amount of hot pepper sauce! Maybe sometime down the road I'll get the courage to include the whole amount, but I'm not usually a big fan of hot pepper ANYTHING! Still, this is a great recipe ~ Many Thanks for posting it!
