“I have one word for this dish--wow! It's so quick and easy to get to the table, but the flavor is amazing. The pork stays nice and moist,and is even better the second day. I like this with yellow rice and refried beans on the side. Don't let the chocolate throw you if you've never had mole sauce. It's such a small amount, and it doesn't make it sweet, it just adds a deeper, richer flavor to the sauce. From Cooking Light. A side note on the cilantro, if you don't like the flavor of it, you can leave it out. Or I've found that dried cilantro is much milder than fresh.”
