- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Reviews for Apple-Cherry Pork Medallions
"I also used craisins with excellent results. Served mine with long grain and wild rice."
"This was a good meal. Because I had apple juice left over from a juice box, I added the extra to the jasmine rice we prefer. The next time I prepare it I will try to end up with more sauce without sacrificing flavor."
