I used 2 pork tenderloins for this recipe and left them whole. I skipped the green chili peppers but made the rest as listed. We enjoyed this with some shrimp, sauteed veggies and basmati rice. Yum!! The blend of flavours in this are so good - I particularly liked the lemongrass. Made for Zaar Stars tag game. Thanks I'mPat! :)
