I've had a craving for Chinese food but with SARS being such a problem in Ontario I just don't dare go to a Chinese restaurant. So we did the next best thing - cooked our own!! I used tenderloin & next time I will probably brush the marinade on the pork as I found the flavour a little overpowering. Thanx Jan!

This recipe was deeevine - will definitely make it again. Of course, I had to subsitute - no bourbon so used sherry, no lemon so used a couple of mandarins. I also feel the colouring is unnessary so omitted that. Still, it was delicious and the sauce, poured over afterwards, was sooo good with the rice :)

Used this with a couple of huge shoulder chops, didnt do the glaze, but loved the taste of the pork! Used this as comfort food, nice and tasty, even with a cold! thanks Jan for another good one!

Easy, quick, delicious and healthy! I didn't bother with the glaze as the juices from cooking were sufficient. Thanks for sharing! I'll be doing this one again! I served it with steamed rice and stir fried vegies.

I tried this recipe on a single pork chop. I pan fried the chop and finished it in a 350F degree oven. It was great.

This was good, however it was a bit dry. Don't worry though, this was totally my own doing since after learning about pork tapeworms, I have become very paranoid when cooking pork and now I always cook it longer than what the recipe calls for. (if you're brave, look up "Taenia solium" in a google search and you'll see why I'm so paranoid). I also didn't get to try the glaze, but these tasted pretty good (even when cold too).

I found this more flavorful than most pork I've tried. I didn't use the light soy sauce or food coloring but my family prefered the more natural color. When cooking, I turned the meat halfway through then boosted the temperature to 425f for 10 minutes. I'm interested in the glaze but we're cutting back on sugar and it was plenty flavorful. Thanks!!!

Exactly like in the Chinese restaurants. I made this last night and sliced it to put in our homemade wonton soup. Excellent!! I used pork tenderloin and marinated it for about 4 hours. Although I didn't use the final glaze, this recipe was fantastic. This one is a keeper.

Great taste, Jan! I love the bbq roast pork we get in restaurants, and tried this one to satify my craving. I did not use the black bean sauce, but I might buy some to try the next time I make this. Lovely, rich flavor.

i wanted to try a new recipe last night, and i'm so glad i found this one! simply delicious marinade and the glaze is a nice touch. cooking over the water bath made for juicy tender meat and such an easy cleanup! i did add more marinade to cover halfway through the cooking time. just lovely.
