    So much better than buying your own. My partner said sex on a plate. Followed recipe but added an onion.

  2. OMG YUMMO. I used diced pork and added a diced onion. Next time I might add some baby corn as well. This recipe has now gone into my fovorites book.

    Did this the other night very yummy! I mixed my cornflour into the pineapple juice then put in it.

    we made it today, but we did not have ginger but used ginger refresher cordial 3 Tbsp. and thought with adding the brown sugar it may have been too sweet but other than that issue it was nice to eat

    We tried this tonight (boneless shoulder, unrolled 1.5kg), didn’t turn out the same colour as the pictures (it was brown)but it was still very nice!
    I had to cut the meat up after about 6hours and let it go for another 30mins on high.
    I decided not to thicken the sauce and let it stay runny to soak the rice.
    The kids and hubby REALLY enjoyed it and I loved how I had all the ingredients in the cupboard.
    We are definitely eating this again!
