Made for My Three Chefs 2008 Makes for a tasty moist piece of pork! I would cut down on the cider vinegar...maybe a 2/3 cup instead of 3/4.Also don't forget to season with some salt and pepper.I used thick pork chops rather than the pork loin because thats what I had on hand and I was'nt disappointed...I grilled them and the apple flavour with the cider vinegar is delicious with herbal undertones from the earthy oregano and garlic.
