What a great, tasty meal this is. I found this recipe years ago somewhere on the Internet, and it is definitely a staple for us. You can substitute chicken for the pork, if desired. I also make just the sauce and use it as a sweet/sour stir fry sauce. Everyone assembles their own lettuce wraps, which is also fun for kids! Fantastique!

Quite delicious! Easy to make and put together. The sauce in particular was very good, I just wish there had been more of it. I left the meat in the marinade overnight and when I put the meat in the frypan there wasn't a lot of marinade left, less than a quarter cup. We really loved the marmalade flavour it added a lot to the sauce. Will be making this again, thanks for posting!

This recipe was delicious and easy to prepare. I was also able to purchase all of the ingredients in our small town grocery store. Even my "picky" daughter love the pork and the sauce.
