I enjoyed this, I added onion and garlic and cooked the cabbage separately as I didn't fancy cabbage cooked for 20 mins!

I doubled it up and found I needed a much bigger pan than the one I had. I also found I needed more 'fluid' but that was easily done. The family liked it very much.

very tasty and real handy...I doubled up to feed 5 and there was loads left over, I didn't add any potatoes as I served it with champ. Will def make again. I'll fry bacon with pork next time. Chops where lovely and moist. Delish!!

We loved this recipe and have done it many times. I have subsituted the pork for chicken and it works just as well.

It was gorgeous. This will definitely become a regular dish. So Easy and sooooo tasty!! We were drinking the 'gravy' from our plates as we didn't want to waste a drop!

Made this recipe several times now and love it for it's taste and simplicity. I thought it tasted even better a day later when the cidery sauce had time to seep into the pork.
Both times when I made it the supermarket didn't have swede so I used parsnips instead, and this also tasted good.
One small thing I did differently was fry up the bacon along with the pork, so that they tasted a bit toasted at the end too..

Delicious! A large amount for 2 people - we couldn't finish it. The smoked bacon gives everything a lovely flavour.

I'm a veggie but I cooked this for my carnivorous husband on St Patrick's Day. The verdict: from my point of view, super-easy (and I left it cooking gently for longer than the recipe said as he was late home); from his point of view: totally delicious!!
