    Really tasty but a bit dry. Adding more water does the trick. Will make again with cashews

    The unnecessary slow cooker destroys the delicate flavors of the curry and pork. Instead, brown the pork and onions and cook the dish over low heat on the stove for 45 minutes. The flavor really opens up and it's ready a lot faster.

    GOOD but not special. Don't make again.

    This was a quick, easy, and delicious meal that my entire family enjoyed! The curry flavor was very mild, which was nice for the kids. Next time, I would add a second apple to enhance the flavor. We used raisins and coconut as a garnish, and next time I think we'll try adding some chopped peanuts for extra texture. Otherwise, it was a great dish!

    I added an extra apple, put raisins in to cook with the recipe instead of as a garnish and added more curry. My family liked it a lot. The second time I made it I substituted boneless chicken thighs for the pork, and we liked it better.

    Had always made chicken curry and this was a welcome change. So easy and it was delicious.
