Great dish which we served over rice. I added a package of frozen peas and skipped the red pepper flakes but otherwise made as directed. A great meal which we enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!

This is a great tasting pork dish, we loved it!! I used rice flour instead of all purpose due to a food allergy and reduced sodium soy sauce and added a bit more sugar as I found the liquid a bit too salty. It turned out perfectly, thx for sharing this here Mikekey.
