About this recipe: I got this recipe from my mother who learned to make it when we lived in England. It's a family favourite and great for company.
This recipe was pretty good. I found the 'sauce' to be more like a thick applesauce than a gravy type of sauce but it was flavorful. I doubt I'd bother food processing the mixture next time and would just keep it whole and pour over the pork. I did think that 45 minutes was too long - it was slightly overdone but maybe my loin was slightly smaller. I'd check it after 30 minutes and go from there. - 28 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this for my fiance with great results. I made some slight modifications to the recipe however: used apple cider instad of "hard" cider, added a clove of garlic when browning the pork, used McCormick's Montreal Seasoning on the pork while browning, added a 1/4 of 14 oz can of saurkraut to the apple mixture before baking, and ended up making the sauce more of a gravy by thickening it with flour in the end). Served with mash potatoes and steamed asparagus. The gravy has a sweet taste and was delicous and the pork was excellent - very tender. I'd make it again. My fiance loved it. - 20 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I really liked this. I was halfway through making it when I realized that I needed a blender (which I don't have), so I didn't puree the onions and apples. I actually prefer it this way, I think, because I like having the pieces to eat along with the pork. The sauce doesn't really get thick, though. It does *thicken* but it's not a thick sauce. Still, very yummy. I'll definitely make it again. - 19 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
