This was super easy to make and my whole house smelled *wonderful* as it cooked. My husband has always claimed to detest pork but he gobbled this up as did my picky toddler. This recipe is a keeper! I served it with quinoa and also steamed some broccoli that I sprinkled with sesame oil & Ponzu sauce and it was fantastic with the pork.
