MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 23, 2014

I liked this recipe. It's a surprising blend of fruit that works with the pork. The added herb mixture that you sprinkle on at the end, adds another layer of flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 27, 2014

This recipe was ok, pork was a little dry for my liking. The topping was delicious. Might be good on chicken as well. I doubled the sauce for the chops since my slow cooker and pork chops were larger than in the recipe. Not sure it's worth the effort.
