Sweet Pork with Beets Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2003
This was a very good combination if you like beets! I didn't have any canned beets so I boiled some fresh ones and used the water I boiled them in for the sauce. I would suggest adding the suger gradually and tasting after each addition...I think I only ended up adding about 1/4 of a cup.

Really yummy and easy. My little girl liked it and liked that it turned the rice pink. Watch out for drips on clothes though! I only used 1/4 cup sugar and I didn't have oyster sauce so I substituted 1/2 teaspoon of fish sauce. I'm betting it's much better with oyster sauce.

This was good and easy to make. I used fresh beets, boiled, and saved the water, just like another reviewer. I used 1/4 cup of honey instead of any sugar, and it was great. The family liked it.

This was a quick and easy recipe... I was looking for a recipe to use my homemade pokeberry juice which is about the same color as beets and came across this recipe... I also had several ingredients in the freezer which needed to be used up like a pork tenderloin with freezer burn some prosciutto (extra bonus) and ginger. I had my usual garlic in the crisper and just happened to have oyster sauce... so... voila!... I had everything except the beets... it still tasted OK... a bit sweet to eat every day (I used a cup of sugar) but good nonetheless... I would make it again and try some variations... I suspect it is a very forgiving, versatile recipe... probably better with a veggie in it... beets or even green pepper...
