We had this for dinner last night. This is really good and flavorful. I had some leftover pork steak, so I skipped the first step where you cook the pork. It comes out delicious either way.
This is a really simple dish to make and tastes like what you get from the restaurant. Just be sure to use a hoisin sauce which tastes good. I like some brands much better than others. There is a link to my favorite brand in the recipe.
