Picked this up off a British recipe site and thought it sounded delightful. Fall is the perfect time for pork and apples and this one has a creamy sauce too! Cant wait to try it, and its made on the stove top in one pan!!!!!

We made a 1/2 recipe, it was a very small pork loin. A word of warning here: if you're going to make 1/2 the recipe, you probably don't want to use 1/2 the liquids. We did and it nearly burnt.

Fabulous recipe, my husband and children throughly enjoyed it (I am veggie!) I added the English mustard to give it a bit of a kick and it is definitely a recipe I would do again. I served it with rice and loved the lack of washing up! Thanks x
