"Amazingly fast and tasty recipe, very healthy too. Even the husband (not normally a huge tofu fan) enjoys it. I love it with tons of garlic but you can use less if you must. The oyster sauce I don't measure so it's approximate. It's pretty salty so use it to your taste. You could serve it with cooked white rice, but it's just as good plain." — by LittleGreyKitten

"Yes, the title says it all! This recipe was created by mistake. While using another recipe as a guide, I made the mistake of using cocktail sauce instead of chili sauce. Well, this was the best darn mistake I have ever made. These pork chops had the most wonderful zip to them! Mistakes like this should happen more often!" — by BOOKCHICKADEE

It might take awhile to learn how to make a perfect roll, but you'll have fun trying! Add wasabi (Japanese horseradish) for a good kick!" — by Vivian Lee
