DH raved over this one. I thought it was a tad hot and that overpowered some of the other spices, but then again, I used Thai chili paste and I'm heavy handed with it. I'll cut back a little next time. (And there will definitely be a next time!) I doubled the water chestnuts and omitted the bamboo shoots as a matter of personal preference. Also put in a large chopped onion. I kept my chops whole and marinated the pork in the remaining ingredients overnight before "crocking" it up. It ended up cooking quite a while longer than 5 hours (maybe 8?), but it didn't hurt a bit. We ate it with plain white rice. Just a splendid flavor and wonderfully tender pork dish. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
