I have made this twice and it is sooo tasty and a total breeze to make - what a lovely dish with fab flavour, a real fave already in our house. Like some other comments have suggested, I had to use more stock. A big Hit!!!

I doubled the recipe and consequently didnt have big enough
fryingpan so popped it in oven, covered. Everyone loved
the taste! Will definitely cook this again!

Excellent receipe and will definitely make this again. Cut the apples into smaller pieces and used additional stock liquid. Also served with mash and tenderstem broccoli.

I made this last night for my fiance and we absolutely loved it! I was surprised as I'm not a big meat eater and he is so I'm trying to become more adventurous with my choice in meat. I'd tried pork before and wasn't a fan but cooked this way I would happily make again and again!

Beautiful flavours, really nice and easy dish. I think you need at least 200ml of liquid but I like lots of sauce so next time I make I'll use 300ml part stock part wine.

I also thought the apples had a bit too much bite so will cut them smaller than eighths next time.

Served with mash and fine beans. Such an easy dinner and very tasty.

Just had this for Sunday dinner and it was rated very highly by everyone. For some reason, I forgot the apples were supposed to be cut into eight and just cut them into four - which left them with a bit of bite in them, which could definitely go next time. I shall have to remember to cut into eight! Definitely a do-again.

Just cooked this for sunday lunch, turned out lovely at different take on cooking pork as it can be quite bland. I used wholegrain mustard and served it will french beans and roast potatoes. I shall definately cook this again, although next time I shall add a splash of white wine..

Delicious. Agree with the comments about adding additional liquid. Great with mash

I have made this twice - excellent both times. The first time I added mushrooms, the second time I added cubes of marrow - both good additions. I also used more stock than suggested.

The whole family love this- kids as well! I also use a little extra liquid.

This was superb, although I added some mushrooms as well, and I found that 100ml of liquid was not enough. I still only used 1 chicken stock cube though, and it thickened quite nicely and tasted fantastic as a sauce. Hubby said "I don't want my pork steaks cooked any other way again ever".. that's how good it was!
