    This is such a good and satisfying meal. I always look for good veggies to add to it, making it a complete meal in one. If we're not careful, my husband and I can eat the whole thing ourselves!

    Very nice and tasty and simple. I added fresh mushrooms and more green onions. We had wonton soup, roll and tea.

    The only substitution I made was to use sesame oil instead of the toasted peanut oil and I also followed some reviewers suggestions to add sliced red bell peppers. This dish was sooooo bland and tasteless. I can usually docor things that don't turn out well, but this one was beyond help.

    Quick, easy, tasty! My boyfriend loved it, and he usually shies away from "healthy" dishes. Added bok choy and carrots to make it a one dish meal. Didn't have toasted peanut oil, so I used canola but only half of what was called for.

    Made exactly as directed except used garlic hoisin sauce by very very teriyaki. We love this dish. Easy to make, flavor is good, and makes excellent leftovers for lunch!

    Yeah, this was awesome. I added chopped garlic, about 1/2 cup chopped zucchini and a tiny amount of sliced mushrooms I had left over from another dish - just put it all in with the pork mixture and let it soak in the spices while I prepared a quick cucumber asian-inspired salad. The whole family loved this. Some of us added a little siracha at the table to spice it up a little. It went together really quickly. Adding this one to our regular rotation. It really hits the spot when you need some take-out style Chinese food but don't want all those calories that typically go with it.

    My family really loved this. I made it according to the recipe and we felt it was restaurant quality. I did coat the pork with the ginger and five spice powder and let it marinate at room temperature for about 20 minutes. Also, to the finished dish my husband and I added a touch of Maggi's Hot Liquid Seasoning to give it a little more zing. We'll definitely keep this one!

    This recipe was easy to make and turned out delicious. Great as a side or as a main dish with some broccoli or zucchini thrown in. Will definitely make again.

    We loved this. I added zucchini and red peppers. I thought the Chinese style noodles were too expensive so I substituted thin spaghetti noodles. I also let the pork marinate for several hours in the 5 spice and ginger. Next time I will double the recipe so he have left overs and I would add more veggies.
