Note:  Made this twice,  we serve the sauce on the side and have forgotten the green onions both times.  This is yummy.  the cumin is a nice touch to the pork.  You could make the sauce with any type of preserves or jam of your tastes.

Serve with lots of fresh, grilled veges.  like asparagus, or we grilled peaches and they were great.
