      Absolutely delicious, but this recipe really needs to specify more about how to cook the pork. Saying to cook it "in a very hot oven" is not cool. I looked up pork cooking temps and I found this useful chart here: http://www.askthemeatman.com/pork_cooking_chart.htm.

      I also reviewed some other recipes before cooking this and decided that the meat would obviously be too dry without any sort of marinade, so I made the sauce first, basted the pork in half of the sauce, and then poured an extra 1/2 cup of chicken broth on top while I cooked. Fortunately I had a meat thermometer and it seemed to take forever to reach 160 F internally. I would try a temp of about 425 F if you want to cook this in a hurry (like 30 mins). (I did *not* cover the meat so the water could evaporate and the juices could thicken.)

      Also, I did not have leeks on hand so I used 1/2 of a white onion and 1 shallot instead. I also couldn't find our red wine vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar instead - the apple paired well with the apple! =)

      I chose to steam these veggies in a big pot - I used a large colander in a big stockpot to do it all at once. I threw some dried rosemary in the water to give it just a little something.

      I added more butter and more sugar to the apples because the caramel sauce was so delicious! (FYI, using a wide flat pan would be ideal for making this so you can lay all the apple slices flat at once. I cored, but did not peel my apples, and I sliced them into thirds b/c halves seemed way to big for a bite, esp. for my three-year-old.)

      Ultimately it all came together and would have been quick if I had known the proper temps for cooking to time it better. It was fairly simple for how complex it looked, and was very tasty and healthy. I liked that the sauce brought everything together nicely and that I didn't have to do anything extra to the veggies. I also like that all the carbs in this recipe come from local summer veggies instead of a grain. I don't eat pork very often, but this seems like a simple recipe to add some variation to your fare. Enjoy! - Salubrious Bunny
