Great recipe - will do again. As specified on an old version of this recipe, I used a good quality apple sauce. I doubled the quantity of stock as my frying pan is rather large. Also I replaced the onions with sweet peppers.

Pork cooked beautifully. Just a shame I was concentrating so much on this I forgot to turn the potatoes on to cook!! o_O

This looks really lovely - does anyone know if it would work with tenderloin, rather than steaks?

Really delicious, so much flavour! I've made it twice now! I followed the advice from others to slice the apples thinly so they cooked more easily. I used 200ml of water and 1 chicken stock cube and let everything simmer in a cast iron pot with the lid on for 30mins. This made the pork really tender. When I cooked it the first time I found that the pork was a little tough cooking it in a frying pan for only 10 minutes.

I substituted the apples with a red onion and leek and it was delicious, will definitely make this again.

Did this tonight for tea. Used diced pork and added mushrooms to the recipe. I also added two chicken oxo cubes and extra water. Decided to put it all in a casserole and popped it in the oven. Served with boiled new potatoes and carrots and green beans. I'm happy to say that my hubby, and surprisingly, my 13 year of son mopped it up!, Will be a firm favourite.

This tastes better than you might expect, and is well worth the very little effort it takes. A great way to cook pork loin steaks or chops.

Great and quick recipe, used more liquid and added mushrooms as said in other comments. Was afraid it would turn out too mustardy, but the taste of the mustard integrated perfectly. Do serve with mash, the sauce makes heaven together with the mash! We served it with Baby Pak choi that we wilted in some boiling water with a tsp of honey.
