    Golden Sunflower's Note:

    This is a bit spicy so you may want to decrease the pepper flakes and add more at the end for taste. I made this for a pot-luck Chinese dinner that is why the serving size is for 8. Can be cut in half. Delicious over Chinese white rice.

      This was ok. I will make it again, but just seemed like it was missing something.

      Very good base recipe. We doubled the sauce as we prefer it saucy, but the original sauce ratio is truer to the Shanghainese version. I agree that there is a little something missing from the recipe. After tasting I added 2-3 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar (remember we doubled the sauce) and that helped to make the flavors pop.

      Excellent and very easy!!! I've made it several times and always use a 16oz bag of frozen green beans that I simply added frozen to the browned pork (cover it and cook for 5ish minutes to steam the beans), and I also added garlic powder to the sauce to save time. I've used ground chicken with excellent results. Yesterday I made my own hoisin sauce, which took it over the top! I usually serve it over Curried Couscous (#16866) and roasted carrots with garlic powder, 5 spice powder and EVOO for an absolutely wonderful meal. Thanks so much for the keeper, I'll be making this one again and again.
