Very bland and could not taste the apple. Meat was tender.

SO tender and flavorful... this is definitely a winning recipe. Instead of cutting a 3lb roast in half, I bought one 1.5lb roast and left it intact (I only needed 4 servings anyway). I loved the gravy most of all, which had a very light apple flavor. I served this with your buttermilk & blue cheese mashed potatoes (I added pureed kale to them this time), and topped everything with the gravy... very yummy. [Made & Reviewed for PRMR]
