    Excellent and easy. I cooked them in a GF Grill and they were delicious.

    I absolutely love the spice paste! I've used it several times and it is a great way to add flavor without a lot of fuss.

    This is one of our favorite recipes. The paste seasons the pork deliciously, and it comes out very moist! It's quick and easy to make, too.

    WAY to salty. I would cut it to 2 teaspoons not tablespoons.

    This recipe was very nice. The flavor was not overwhelming, but a nice complement to the pork, even heat from the cayenne...will definitely use it again.

    We love this recipe! I just had to look it up since I lost the one I cut out of the mag and my daughter was upset I hadn't made it recently!
