Top Review by Podkayne

The hubby and I went bonkers over this dish. We've just moved back to the Midwest, land of the delicious grain-fed pork, and I thought this recipe looked great: tasty and easy! The hubby was skeptical about apples and pork together, but I convinced him that it's a classic combo. I used Granny Smith apples and a pork rib roast, which was less fatty, and just browned it in a heavy skillet. The pork was falling apart, and the apples just *barely* held their shape. (I peeled them; I don't know if I'll have the patience to do that next time!) The apples were nice and tart, not over-sweet. We were both very pleased with the taste, and it's put us in the mood for mulled cider. :) Great recipe, Dancer! Thanks!
