    Light or dark soy sauce?  -  29 Apr 2017


    Very Good. I will make this again!  -  14 Jan 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made no changes to the marinade and absolutely LOVED this recipe! The only reason I give it four stars instead of five is because of the preposterous amount of cooking time stated. You don't need to cook it for 24 hours. If you do, you should probably look into getting a new slow cooker, because yours isn't working properly! The marinade itself, however, definitely rates 5 stars. If you like your meats sweet and savory, you'll probably like this. I think this has earned a permanent place in our rotation.  -  19 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
