Would not change a thing. I did the water and cornstarch step when the pork reach 142 internal. When it come to a boil and I removed, it moved to 145 internal. Perfect.

I love apple and mustard flavors with pork so this was awesome. I typically serve with egg noodles on the side.

This was a very flavorful dish and simple as well. Will definitely be making again. My husband and both felt we would pay for this in a restaurant.

Absolutely delicious!! I even used Motts 40% Less sugar apple juice & it was still flavorful. I always add a bit more garlic & pepper to my liking. I really enjoyed this recipe.

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!
