Recipe by Hey Jude

Good winter time comfort food. Just add a salad for a complete meal. I found this recipe in an old issue of Good Housekeeping, 1980.

The pork was tender and delicious. This was an excellent recipe that we shall be making a regular part of our repertoire. Hubby isn't in to spicy, so I left out the red pepper.
