I used cubed pork shoulder to make this so I used the crockpot. I really enjoyed the ginger and lemon taste. I served it on rice with a spinach salad and texas toast. Next time I'll try it with the pork loin. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-South and Central America.

I made this for a family dinner, trying to do new things with pork loin beyond the classic roasted loin with rosemary. This is about as different from that as I could imagine and still be pork loin. I love the high note of lemon, followed by the strong aroma of ginger, finished off by a pleasant sting of jalepeno. The tomato ties it together to give it an unexpected comfortable arrangement. My brother-in-law, a world traveler, commented, "It's an unexpected blend of flavor, but it is as far from unpleasant as I could imagine." Definately a recipe to make again! October 18, 2008

Quick and tasty dish! The pork was very tender, and the dish had a nice lemony flavour. Next time I think I'll add more jalapenos because they didn't really come through in the overall flavour. Thanks Marlitt! Made for ZWT 4.
