Reviews for Roast Pork with Apples & Onions
"Delicious! A bit too many apples so I'll cut back on those next time. Otherwise, really really good :-)"
"My Family loved the pork, but weren't all crazy about eating the apples and onions, although that's what gave the awesome flavor! Served with a side of cilantro rice and some green beans, great meal will definitely make again!"
"This was fabulous. pork was tender and juicy, apples and onions just right. Will make this again. And again."
"Excellent! The roast was nice and moist. I think the apples and onions helped it stay that way. I will definitely make this again."
"Excellent. I would make this again."
"I agree with some of the other reviews that it was just kind of plain. Nothing really special as far as taste goes to make me want to make this again."
"[quote user="JennyRed__FL"]The book lists the cook time as 1 1/4 hours.[/quote]The cook time was adjusted to keep consistent with the new recommendations for cooking pork to 145º."
"I got this recipe from the 2011 Taste of Home Cookbook. The book lists the cook time as 1 1/4 hours. The apples were mushy after only 45 minutes, but I couldn't remove them because they were mixed in with the onions. They picture makes it look as though the onions would get slightly crispy, but they ended up mushy as well. So, even at the shorter cook time listed online, the apples and onions wouldn't have been good. Any flavor the garlic might have given the dish completely dissipated in the oven. In short, the pork was very plain, and the apples and onions were mushy and tasteless. I'm very disappointed in TOH for not only choosing the recipe to be published in their book and online, but for having discrepancies in the cook time."
