Wonderful comfort food. The kind of dinner I'd like to have on a lazy Sunday. Scalloped or Duchesse potatoes are especially good alongside.

Excellent dinner. I only had one hour to put the rub on the meat. I then followed the recipe and it was wonderful. I made Recipe #60866 for the apples and served with mashed potatoes and the wonderful sauce. The smell in the kitchen was amazing. Do not overcook the pork, it was moist and delicious.
