    i was in a hurry, had only weird things left in the fridge - i had everything i needed to make this dish - my husband loved it, my kids loved it - i thought it was great - i used 2 large pork steaks (which was what i had on hand) but apart from that followed the recipe, minus marinating - i just cooked the meat in the marinade and it turned out fine - my 6 yo son loved the "sauce" on his rice... :)

    I think step one is marinating step only & step 2&3 are the actual cooking steps. In step 3 you add the marinated pork less garlic & peppercorns, just the juice. Thats what I did and turned out to be a wonderful dish. I just added another half cup of water & simmer longer to make the meat more tender. Adjusted my salt and vinegar accordingly. Worth the try!

    I tried the recipe. It was good. I too thought it was strange to put garlic in twice. I did and the dish ended up with too much garlic taste. It was still good and would eat it again.

    Tonkcats I love your recipes but there is a bit of confusion about this recipe. It didn't say when to add the water so I thought that I should add it in the beginning with the pork & the garlic peppercorn etc as it was to cook for 30 minutes. This resulted in very pale looking pork. Then in step2 you say to cook the garlic - well it was already in the skillet in step one. I found that near the end of the cooking time that the result was quite bland so I added 1 tsp Carne Asada spice and 2 tbsps Szechuan sauce. results - excellent. As I said I love your recipes but this one was not to my taste buds! Thanks for all you other wonderful recipes that I have tried and loved Tonkcats
