I decided that this recipe looked tasty, so I took the plunge and it was so delicious!!! I'm usually wary about cooking pork because I always seem to overcook it and it usually turns out dry. For this recipe, I followed it to a tee, with the exception of adding five cloves of minced garlic, and three Tsp. of low sodium soy sauce to cut the sweetness of the maple syrup. I, like others substituted olive oil for sesame oil since I didn't have sesame oil on hand. Marinated the pork all night.. then baked in a glass dish in the oven at 375 degrees for 45 mins. It was sooo tender and juicy. I also used the leftover marinade to baste the pork while baking. After cooking, I used the basted marinade to make a scrumptious gravy. I served it with mashed potatoes and asparagus. My 8 year old and 13 1/2 month old loved it!!! It is a bit on the sweet side, even though I used soy sauce to try to cut the sweetness; so next time, I will use 1/2 cup of maple syrup.
