    This reminds me of a West African dish called Mafe, made with more vegetables. My recipe calls for beef and sweet potato. Some call for lamb, egg or just veggies such as cabbage, yams, squash, okra, eggplant, potatoes, peppers or carrots. - 10/8/07

    First SP recipe I've tried. Will make it again. I toasted the sesame seeds, and cooked the pork with a slice of fresh ginger heated in the oil first. Served it on a nest of steamed cabbage, with a scoop of brown rice in the center. It was yummy! Will make it again. - 4/19/09

    This was very good! The pork was good on its on for leftovers w/o the higher-fat/calorie sauce. The sauce was amazing, I just used less sauce/serving & cooked brown rice. Next time I plan to add chicken broth to make it less thick and freeze the leftover sauce for the next time I make the pork. - 4/8/08

    The sauce was a little thick. We would also use garlic powder instead of garlic salt next time. We also found that we had to triple the rub to get enough on the pork. We love that you can change the salsa and get a whole new flavor out of it! - 4/6/08

    I made it with reduced fat peanut butter and used fresh garlic instead of garlic salt. My daughter like the sauce, but my son did not. They both liked the pork. - 10/9/08

    Kids really like the pork but didn't care as much for the sauce. I thought it was a little off somehow too but can't put my finger on exactly what the problem was.

    Next time I'll use the sesame seeds and green onions. Maybe that was the problem. At any rate there will be a next time. Thanks! - 1/24/09

    My husband and I enjoyed it, though one of my children wouldn't eat it (the picky one of course) I would have liked even more "heat" to it. To cut down on carbs and calories we used 1/4 cup of brown rice. - 7/9/08

    The meat was wonderful - moist and delicious. The sauce was only okay, and the kids wouldn't eat it. Next time I'll use my own sauce. - 6/17/08
