I used a 1/4 lb piece of pork loin and reduced this to a serving for one ( I don't see how a full recipe would feed 6-8). This was simple to make, and the contrast between the rosemary and cider is nice, though a little sweeter then I prefer. If I made this again I would try using hard cider and maybe adding thyme and garlic for more flavor complexity . I served it over penne noodles. Made for the Comfort Cafe July 09

This was very good. The rosemary was a little strong for the kids and I might reduce that next time for them. I can see a lot of flexibilty in this recipe. I used extra wide Amish noodles and they were worked well. Thanks!!

This was a wonderful combo of flavors!! I added some fresh chopped garlic and added it with the onion. Added half tablespoon more of flour and half cup more of the apple juice for more juice. We used mini penne pasta and the juice just flowed inside! Next time I will reduce the rosemary just a tad but overall it was amazing! Oh, and before cooking the pork I marinated it in 1 cup apple juice and a capfull of liquid Hickory smoke. Thank you for the recipe, everyone raved :)
