Had this dish and it was FABULOUS! I had to substitute the white balsamic vinegar with red and it was a little zesty but man oh man was it good. Not only did we enjoy it the first meal with fluffy mashed potatoes but were able to use it for sandwiches the next couple of days. Nothing beats a cold pork sandwich on fresh bread....I will be making this again.
