    Heather3271's Note:

    I am not the type to mix my food. I want my sweet tastes with the sweets and the salty with the salty stuff. David, on the other hand, has no problem with it at all--in fact, loves it. This recipe is the ONLY thing I'll eat that mixes flavors, so that should tell you just how YUMMY it really is. Enjoy! By Joseph "Joe Dogs" Iannuzzi, 2003.

      "The Mafia Cook Book" is tops. Every recipe is delicious and every recipe has a story. Our favorite is the Mandarin Pork Roast. The recipe itself is simple and bulletproof. The only trick is to watch the temp so as not to over-cook the pork.

      This review is just for the sauce, as I had a smaller tenderloin so I quick roasted it and served this on the side (to accommodate picky kids who like everything plain). Great flavor that really complements the pork. I used 2 green onions instead of a yellow onion, left out the green pepper, and used regular sodium soy sauce. It's reminscent of sweet and sour sauce but a little different. Just be sure to constantly stir the sauce so it doesn't get lumpy.

      Nov 09 Updated review: I made this recipe again this evening, but instead of using pork, I used ham. It turned out even better! The only other substitution I used was regular mustard and I added horse radish because I didn't have any dijon on hand. AWESOME!! (Nov 30 2007) My family is still praising my dinner efforts of last night! This was an extremly easy recipe to do, and was very well received by my husband (who is a chef, and really picky) and my 4 and 6 year old kids! They even had seconds!!! Thanks so much for such a great recipe!
