"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."

MY REVIEW

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

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."
