Yum! Do you use pork cutlets? They look thin in the picture.
Hope you have a fun party.

I really enjoy recipes with rice and if it’s kind of sticky, covered with flavors from other ingredients, even better!
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. This is such a delicious and easy recipe.
Yes – I think chicken would work just fine in this recipe. I may try it that way next time actually!
Rachel – I actually sliced a boneless pork loin for this. I had one left over from the BBQ pork loin I made the other day and decided to just use it for this recipe! It worked fine for what I needed it for.
ohman, my husband would *love* this! mee too for that matter 🙂 what an awesome way to cook pork quickly, mmm. MMM!
