Lovely! And so easy. I think I'll make a little more sauce next time as the pork was a little dry. May try cooking the pork in the Stock and Mustard in the slow cooker for a few hours and add the cooked apples in the last half hour to see if that helps to soften the meat. Oh, I also realised I had no wholegrain mustard (infuriating since we usually have at least 3 jars of the stuff!) so took a gamble and used about 1 1/2 teaspoon of English Mustard instead - surprisingly good!

Delicious despite the above and will definitely make again.

If anyone is interested, served with Green Beans and Chorizo Potatoes (yum!)

This time I substituted the sage leaves with mushrooms. Excellent!

Easy, but tasty. For 2 people, I used 2 small apples, cut into eighths and with the skin left on.
This recipe was easily made suitable for coeliacs by using gluten-free stock.

I added onion and red pepper along with the apple to make it more satisfying, and just added the pork to the pan earlier rather than removing everything then putting it back in! Served it with mash. A really tasty dish and something different to do with pork, loved it.

Was a favourite of many to my family. I used cooking apples and Greek yoghurt to reduce the fat content. I served it with honey-glazed carrots, Parmesan potatoes and white cabbage. Very very tasty and easy to make!

A firm favourite, gorgeous dish and doesn't feel sickly with creme fraiche as it would cream

Really tasty dish, even the kids liked it despite having hot mustard in it! The only thing they weren't keen on bizarrely were the apples - which my husband and I thought were delicious. The kids have asked me to make for dinner again so definitely on the family meal list. Served with green beans and rice to make a change from potatoes.

I used pork chops so followed the recipe up until adding the stock. I removed the chops from the pan after browning them and used apple juice instead of stock. I then added the mustard as in the recipe and also added two dessert spoons of honey. I returned the pork chops to the pan and baked it in the oven until the chops were cooked. five minutes towards end of cooking I added the apples which had been caramelised. I removed the chops and kept them warm. i reduced the sauce then poured over the chops and served. it was delicious.

Lovely dish. Didn't have any creme fraiche so just left that out.....it was still good. Would definitely make it again, very quick and easy.
