I served this to my family while guest was over for dinner. I usually don't ginea pig guests with new recipes but it was really good and everyone ate every bite. Serving size was pretty small - I used a pound of meat and made 1 1/2 servings of the marinade. Next time I will double the carrot/cilantro/onion portion, though keep the oil as is. Some of us did add a little low-fat mayo on our buns. Really flavorful dish and easy prep.

This was more of a 3.5 recipe. It was fast and easy and we really enjoyed the carrot mix with the pork - including my middle school age kids. I marinated the pork over night. When I make this again, I will grill the tenderloin. Nice flavors for a different pork sandwich.

Tasty quick meal. Served the bun for the family and I enjoyed mine without the bun.

Definitely a 5-star recipe for a quick dinner in my house! I used fresh wheat rolls out of the bakery instead of hamburger buns... Don't use hamburger buns when you can class it up! I also added a bit if sesame oil and soy sauce to the vegetables. Delicious!! Served with a simple spinach salad with store-bought sesame ginger dressing.

This was more delicious than I expected. My husband and I both loved it! Just the right amount of heat and sweet!!! Most definitely a keeper!

Great recipe for a weeknight. Barely any prep time and cooks in minutes. My husband and I loved it. We are gluten free, so we eliminated the bun and ate it out of a bowl. Yum!!

Really yummy! I froze my pork tenderloin for about 45 mins prior to slicing and got super thin slices. I also grilled the pork (unfortunately losing some through the grate but thats an easy fix). The flavors were outstanding, I made it gluten-free by using tamari and our GF guest had it on a GF bun and we had great bakery whole wheat buns. My only complaint was that I found it a little dry (pork was not overcooked but the combo of the dry bun, the meat and the not overly moist slaw made it a little dry on my palate). The men used sriracha and us girls used some sweet thai chili sauce and it made the world of difference! I think next time I may throw together a little sriracha mayonnaise to dress the bread. Will be making again for sure!

My kids love this sandwich and this is my second time making it. Fun for week night dinners.
