"A sweet and tangy sauce simmers with pork for over an hour. Jalapeno added at the end helps add a little kick. Serve alone or over rice or noodles." — throwrox

Yum! I really like this recipe, it's a great way to use fresh cherries, the sauce is spicy and sweet, very good. I served it over hot cooked white rice. Thanks!
This felt like a gourmet meal! I agree it could have used more jalapenos. But it certainly was tasty served with Spanish rice. I'll certainly make this again.
I am always searching for creative ways to use the abundance of cherries I harvest from my two large trees every year and this one was a hit with the family. I did make some slight changes to it though. I replace the pork with boneless, skinless chicken thighs and added an extra jalapeno for heat. Then I added a two more tablespoons of honey to up the sweetness to balance. Finally, I found the sauce simply too runny so I thickened it at the end of cooking with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with water. Served over hot cooked rice, even my three young picky boys gobbled it up. I will definitely make this recipe again
This was just ok for us. There was nothing wrong with it, but it didn't wow us at all. It definitely could have used a few more jalapenos.
This was very easy and tasty, I'm not a huge fan of cumin so therefore the flavor was not my favorite but that's just personal taste. The recipe is very good
