- Cook, stirring, until light brown.

A 5 star + recipe. We thoroughly enjoyed this dish. Such a wonderful balance of flavor. I did not change a thing and will not the next time I make this dish > a rarity for me. I use leftover pork tenderloin and served with Israeli couscous. A huge hit! This recipe will go in my Best of 2013 cookbook. Thanks Choco!
