Okay, to start, I will admit, I did not have any apple cider vinegar, so I used regular apple juice. I am not sure how much that affected the outcome. So if you try this... I wouldn't make that substitution! Otherwise, it was fair. I did not find that it had any flavor. Without the apples on top, there was no flavor. Also, it said to quarter the apples, I would instead recommend making them bite size, or at least much smaller than quartered. I am not sure what happened, but no one liked them. I wouldn't make it again.
The flavors are wonderful. Made this last fall and forgot to rate it. Made it again this fall with pork loin chops. Used apple pie spice instead of nutmeg/cinnamon mixture, it is what I had on hand. Used 1 large Cortland apple per pork chop for a total of six apples, six chops. The combo bites of apple & pork were fantastic, great flavor. Definitely add more apple than you think you will need. We always seem to end up with more pork that apples and everyone scurries to get the last apple bites.
Using freshly picked, oh-so-flavorful Fuji apples, I followed this recipe right on down & we had a wonderful main dish served with my often made combo of garlic mashed potatoes & peas! Great taste, wonderful dinner, & a defnite keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my swapmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #33]
