Pork in Peanut Sauce

Recipe by  

"A quick and easy, delicious way to serve pork! Can be served over a bed of chopped romaine for a low-carb meal, or noodles for the traditionalists. The oil you use will make all the difference: the peanuttier the better; an obscure brand from the ethnic section of the supermarket is usually a better bet than one of the cheaper, mass-market varieties."

This was really good. It was a little too hot for me, but hubby loved it. I didn't add the veggies, and it was great served with the "poor man's rice" from this site. Great dinner...thanks for the post.

This was pretty good. I used low sodium soy sauce & low sodium chicken broth & left out the pepper flakes because I have small children. Next time I will use regular chicken broth because it needed a little more salt. Very quick & easy.

Great dish! The pork was very tasty; I added fresh veggies instead of frozen, powdered ginger instead of fresh ginger, and I left out the cashews. It was still a hit for myself and my husband!

OMG this was waaay to salty! I always use low sodium soy and even then this was extremly salty. I guess it would have helped if i used low sodium chicken broth too. Needed more peanut butter and cornstarch to thicken it up a bit at the end. Will not make this again.

Nice idea - and the final dish was really good - but the sauce as written was WAY too salty for me. I ended up adding quite a bit of coconut milk to it to calm it down. Otherwise, the recipe is good - especially using fresh veggies, but you gotta cut down on the soy. Thanks for the recipe!

Delicious!I was so afraid it wouldn't turn out, it looks weird when you mix the sauce but dang!I think next time I will add some pinneapple, I think that would be tastey!

This was very tasty. I didn't have chicken broth and used water in it's place. It was a bit salty so I added a little milk at the end to cut the salt and make a more gravy-like sauce and I served it over rice which I did not salt either...it was very good...
