    Delicious! The hint of anise in the pork is lovely, and it came out nice and moist. This recipe's a keeper!

    We need a 10 star option. Amazing! By far the best pork I have ever had, let alone made. I use a pork loin when I make this. There are only 2 of us so it's still enough food, and I can make it in about 45 minutes that way. (Roasting pan, uncovered, 2- 2.5 lbs, about 400*, about 45 minutes - We like our pork really done). The only other thing I change is that I use Syrah or Malbec from Frontera. It's pretty cheap but really tasty. We get a double bottle and serve it with dinner also. Anyway, this recipe is definitely restaurant quality and makes the perfect at-home date night. We usually have it with a salad and a rice dish, and oh yeah, plenty of wine!

    What an interesting dish!! Asian flavours with the rosemary & port!! Have to say I was a tad sceptical & didn't know what to serve with it. Took note of other reviewers & made your smashed taters (a long-time fave now)& that worked. I cooked about a kilo of stewing pork in my new pressure cooker (any Perthites here, the French lady at Subi has a great sale on now). Soo tender. If I'd been organised I was going to use the crock pot, but I think the pressure cooker gave a more tender result. Despite the mainly Asian flavours, the potatoes went well with it. My husband & son both absolutely RAVED about this dish & want me to make it weekly - and that's high praise indeed. Thank you, mate:)

    We are staying with Jewelies for a few days and she cooked this for our dinner last night. It was delicious with parmesan crusted mashed potato balls, carrots and asparagus and the wonderfully flavoured pan juices served over it.

    Really yummy! I put everything in the crock pot (minus the oil), with a bit more wine. I also added 1 cinammon stick, 1 whole chili, and a head of bok choy. It was super!!
