Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I used Chicken
I used chicken instead of pork in this recipe. I think next time i will add green onions and it will be perfect. We spiced it with cajun seasoning.
We really enjoyed this recipe. The flavor was really tasty. Sometimes recipes like this don't have a lot of sauce in order to mix in with the noodles at the end but this was not the case. There was plenty. I did adapt it a bit because I couldn't find apricot nectar or sesame oil. So, for the 4 serving version, I put in 3 huge spoons of apricot preserves and I subtituted sesame seeds...about 1/2 tsp or so instead of the sesame oil. I was pleased with the result even with my changes.
sweet n sassy
If you like apricots then this is for you. The glaze has a sort of sweet taste and a lil bit / kick to it. And the pork just adds the right flavor to it all. My kids like this dish along with the carrots. veggies kids don't eat they eat now! this recipe is so easy and not alot of time to make great in a pinch.
I made this meal hoping that it would be new and exciting. Wrong...it was very bland. The meat was nice and tender, but the noodles and sauce just was not what I was expecting. Next time I think I'll make this with pineapple and rice instead of apricot and Fettucine.
I made the receipe but no one was overly empressed by it. I would try a different flavor of juice next (maybe the pineapple like the other reviews suggested). I would use rice instead of the noodles and add vegtables to it. I added Sesame seeds to the pork when it was done and it gave it a little crunch. I left out the cinnamon but maybe that is what it was lacking. Overall it tasted like orange flavored pork.
