MY REVIEW

This was tasty and easy for a weeknight dinner. I only had whole berry cranberry sauce and seeded mustard, but they both worked out quite well. Will try this again as written.

I cooked an onion with the pork and added a can of drained black beans and made this a great meal in one dish. Also used dried cherries. All the sweet apple, cherry and potato, my kids loved it.

According to the "Nutrition Fact's" as listed, I hope there is more flavor than Nutrition!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2008

I have used apple juice making this because I didn't have chicken broth. It made it very sweet to our taste. I did think that using 1/2 broth and juice might be good, but I haven't made it again.
