      This was sooo good...if all portugese food is like this I'm hooked. I only had one problem and that was that my lemon was very lemony, I tasted the dish before I added the extra lemon and decided that it did'nt need it. Oh and i served it over egg noodles...thanks mark

      My friend and I thought this was fine and worth a repeat performance. My only quibble is with nearly 3 lbs. of meat for 4 servings. We ate almost half of 1.62 lbs of pork...plenty left for 2 more or good left overs. Bottom line, however, was that it was easy, with readily found ingredients and it had lots of flavor.

      As a rule, I don't rate anything, but this dish is sooooooo bad that I had to write in and save other people from wasting good ingredients. I followed this recipe exactly (something else I never do), and even browned the meat in batches so it would not be gray. The pork was still tasteless, the sauce horrific, and this recipe has no reedeeming characteristic. P.S. I am a pretty good cook, and have been successfully making online recipes every week for years.

      Sorry yooper and Gidget.
