Very tasty. I had to use veggie broth as I didn't have any apple cider or juice. I also added 3 or 4 cut-up dried apricots. Used Basmati rice and just let it cook a bit longer. Thanks for a keeper!
this was really quite good, and you're right, it goes with pork most excellently. my sweet Wife can't do walnuts, so i used sliced almonds instead and it was still wonderful. i served this as a bed for Denise!'s Spicy Baked Pork Steaks [Spicy Baked Pork Steaks], and it was the perfect accompaniment. thank you for sharing it.
