    The amount of ground Ginger added to this recipe over powers the dish. I suggest that you halve or even only add 2 Teaspoons of ground Ginger and not 2 Tablespoon as the recipe asks. Also add 2 Tablespoons of water rather than 2 teaspoons. I will give this recipe another try with adjustments to the ginger & water.  -  02 Jan 2014


    Not the best recipe, it needs a lot of amendments to taste good, but I like the general idea of pork with plum sauce.  -  01 Sep 2017
