This dish was excellent! My husband is not a big fan of pork, yet he loved this pork dish. In fact, he asked me if we could put this on our regular rotation. It was pretty simple to make. A couple of differences is that I used a little extra cornstarch/pepper/salt mixture to have enough for the pork (and I didn't coat by all means, just a dusting on each piece of meat). I used a pound of pork tenderloin - which is a bit more than what it calls for. The recipe states that it feeds 4, but my husband and I gobbled up almost the entire meal in one sitting - just be aware if you are making this for company. Also, because the thinly-sliced pork cooks so fast, next time I will make sure I have all other ingredients chopped and ready to go before I start cooking the pork.
