Absolutely delicious!! I even used Motts 40% Less sugar apple juice & it was still flavorful. I always add a bit more garlic & pepper to my liking. I really enjoyed this recipe.

This was so easy and very tasty too. The pork was so tender you could cut it with a fork. I will definately make this again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 19, 2009

Delicious! I didn't have apple juice concentrate, so I used 2 Tbsp of apple jelly preserve.

A trick I learned for always having tender pork is to place the pork in a cold pan and then heat. No tough pork ever again.

Try this recipe - delicious!
