5 big stars!! this recipe was fantastic!! i accidentally added the rice vinegar to the marinade so i added another tbs to the cabbage mixture...the flavor was the best i've found on zaar so far!! the pork marinated for over a hour & smelled so good my bf came into the kitchen to inspect what smelled so great!! i'm not a fan of cold dishes so i tossed the cabbage & bell pepper into the pan after the pork was almost done & served over hot chow mein noodles...i cant explain how good it was!! UPDATE: i'm making this again tonight with chicken, will letcha know how it turns out! just realized i never posted my picture so i'll add that.
