This is so yummy!! I threw it all in the Crockpot before leaving for work on a Friday morning; the pork was amazingly tender and moist. Leftovers even better! I added a palm full of crushed red pepper, just because we like things a little kicky. Great recipe; the family voted it into the regular rotation �

Have been making this (almost identical) recipe for years as well. I always add garlic (2 - 3 cloves crushed - or fine diced) and tonight, tried a different twist. Instead of salt and pepper mixed into the flour, I added about 1 1/2 - 2 tsp (I eyeballed it - could have been a tablespoon) of curry powder. A subtle change that added another dimension to the pork ... was very good and very well received.

Followed recipe exactly. Easy to make. Thought it was ok, but wouldn't make again.
