    Very boring. It just tasted like pork with a heavy layer of applesauce on top so too sweet for us. Will try something more savoury next time.

    Three sime words. De. Lic. Ious. This is a delicious recipe - it tastes like Fall if Fall had a taste. Followed the recipe & ingredients. I cut everything in half as I was cooking thin cut boneless pork chops tonight instead of a full pork loin. ('Cept skipped the gravy). I think the sauce is very good! Great mixture of flavors. Everyone at the table loved it. I think I shall use this on a pork loin for Thanksgiving. Thank you-!

    We really enjoyed the pork prepared this way. I used a tart homemade applesauce that I made awhile ago, other than that, made exactly as written. The mustard rub was a nice surprise. The pork was lovely, just the right amount of spice, it was perfectly cooked; nice and tender with a delicious applesauce glaze. We really enjoyed the ground cloves in this dish. Thanks for sharing, made for Name That Ingredient Tag Game.
