  5. This is great! I have made something similar but eaten the pork for one meal and saved to cooking liquid for the base of a pumpkin soup. I will try this one next time!

  6. A great recipe for a crisp fall evening. Pork has been neglected. It makes a great stew but is rarely used. It's a shame. I really like your recipe.

  8. I am usually not a fan of stew but I love yours! It has the combo pork-apple I love. Thanks for sharing!
