"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."

"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!"
