    This turned out really well. So good, and I normally don’t just love pork! I used a different cut and topped with green onions. The leftover sauce in the pan was great for dipping. I wish I would have thought to make some noodles, because it would have been really good for that, too. Jeremy says I need to give this one 4 stars, only because nothing could ever be as good as his mom’s clam chowder! –Brik

    We all loved this recipe. There were absolutely NO leftovers. We used the sauce as gravy for mashed potatoes, and that was amazing. I think it would also be good as a dipping sauce for sourdough bread. There are many options. We gave this dish 5 stars.
