Delicious and so easy! I misread some of the simple ingredient instructions by using the whole piece of pork (fat and all) and not draining the tomatoes. I think next time if I forget to drain the tomatoes 1 can will be plenty. What is different with this recipe compared with similar recipes is the addition of cloves and cinnamon which gives the meat a sweet and spicy taste which is a nice change. Thanks for sharing!
