      at first i was a little put off by how many spices there were in this,i thought it would be overwhelming. it ended up wonderful. all the different flavors blended really well. the only things i didn't have were juniper berries and marjoram. with or without i think it still would turn out nice. i wanted the pork to be very tender so i slow cooked it for about 4 hours. i think this helped to mellow out the seasoning quite a bit. when it was done i felt like the sauce was a little too watery so i mixed in a tablespoon of sour-cream. i garnished it with crispy bacon in the end and it added little bites of smoky salty bits. i think this would have also been very good with egg noodles. i added my own spin to it but i think my changes or the original recipe is wonderful. it was very easy to make and i would make this again!
