    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You can use any cut of pork you desire. I like pork shoulder because it has more flavor. This cooks slowly and does not require a lot of attention,it's easy to make, and even better if you prepare this a day ahead, the flavors really intensify, just rewarm over low heat. Because of the soy sauce, add the salt in at the end of cooking. If possible make this with only green onions. Serve this with rice, this is a wonderful pork dish!

      This was wonderful! I made it with only 2lbs of pork chops (cubed) and I wish I would have used 4lbs so that we had leftovers. I didn't have any 5 spice seasoning but I added a dash of cinnamon...still delicious! It was so flavorful. All the busy work is upfront (20 min), then just sit back and enjoy the smells :) I will certainly be making this again for my hubby and kids.

      What a wonderful recipe! We're having a Hawaiian themed party, and I was hoping to find at least one recipe that did not include pineapple! I made a test batch and let it sit overnight as suggested, and it was a HUGE hit with the family. The five spice powder really adds a special dimension to the dish. I have no doubt it will be one of the highlights of the party. Thanks for another winner, KITTENCAL!
