We really liked this! Since the cooking method is really the key to this dish, it would have been nice to have more complete instructions on what size pan and how to arrange the meat in it. I think most of us assumed to bake it in a shallow dish arranged in one layer. I more than doubled this recipe (btw, you don't need quite twice the rub - had a little too much) and didn't want to use two dishes, so I baked it in my 8-qt dutch oven. I didn't quite have room to single layer and my pork was pretty snug in there. Turned out perfect in 2 hours! For anyone who has trouble with this dish drying out, try shortening the cooking time and/or snuggling your meat cubes closer in the pan. Thanks so much for the recipe!

while it was a little short on instructions, this is what I did: I used a shallow pan with a little olive oil on the bottom to prevent sticking and cooked it for a little less than 2hr- probably 1h40mins- DELICIOUS!!- Thanks for sharing- our two year old even liked it and she hates everything. I served it with a couple of steamed veggies on the side. I'm making it later this week for dinner guests.


This is one of my favorites! I never even liked pork until I had this. My family ate it over rice. It was not very spicy, so beware if that's what you like. My mom, who doesn't like anything spicy, ate it and liked it.
