  1. I used cubed pork shoulder to make this so I used the crockpot. I really enjoyed the ginger and lemon taste. I served it on rice with a spinach salad and texas toast. Next time I'll try it with the pork loin. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-South and Central America.
  2. I made this for a family dinner, trying to do new things with pork loin beyond the classic roasted loin with rosemary. This is about as different from that as I could imagine and still be pork loin. I love the high note of lemon, followed by the strong aroma of ginger, finished off by a pleasant sting of jalepeno. The tomato ties it together to give it an unexpected comfortable arrangement. My brother-in-law, a world traveler, commented, "It's an unexpected blend of flavor, but it is as far from unpleasant as I could imagine." Definately a recipe to make again!
  3. Quick and tasty dish! The pork was very tender, and the dish had a nice lemony flavour. Next time I think I'll add more jalapenos because they didn't really come through in the overall flavour. Thanks Marlitt! Made for ZWT 4.
  4. This had a nice flavour. The next time I won't use as many tomatoes as I am not fond of them cooked. I served it with boiled patatoes and green beans. The broth was good to soak up with bread. I added 2 tsp of cornstarch at the end to thicken it up a bit. Made forZWT2 for the chic ches.


<p>I live in Canada our winters are far to long and cold. I like to try new recipes. I don't really have a favorite cookbook. I enjoy reading fiction, my friends,good conversation,gardening,and the great outdoors. Love to travel, by plane, boat or automobile. My pet peeves are inconsiderate drivers who stop on a main road holding up traffic. <br />I'd really enjoy spending some time camping IN THE SUMMER by a beach or go the caribbean in the winter-- to the beach at one of the all inclusive clubs they always have a lot of different foods to try.. <br /><br /><a href=><img src=;c=5589268 border=0 alt=HTML Counter /></a><a href=>Dell</a> <a href=>Server Computers</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><br />Participation &amp; Awards:</p> <p><a href=></a></p> <p><img src= alt= /></p> <p><img src= alt=Image hosted by /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Annacia's banner for Zaar Tag /><img src= border=0 alt=Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket&gt; /></p>
