      This is really delicious & an easy fix. Made as written for Newest Zaar Tag w/only 1 chg, I added re-hydrated dried minced onion as a shortcut since onion felt essential (for me at least). A great flavour is achieved w/patience & cooking the pork til nicely browned & nearly "crunchy". Then the water & wine deglaze the lovely pan drippings during the simmering process. While there was just a sml amt of marinade left to reserve, I wouldn't skip doing so as it adds so much flavour to the sauce. I made an error & simmered it uncovered, so had to add more water & a bit of cornstarch to get enough liquid & a sauce consistency to serve over the rice. Even then the sauce was a bit scant for dy 2 leftovers. I'm a big fan of expanding recipes for spec needs or pers pref, but adding mushrooms or extra black olives are the only further chgs I'd consider. Served w/broccoli & a lemon pepper infused hollandaise sauce, the combo made a great meal. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
