I bought some really nice pork from the butcher (essential for this recipe I think), added some Fines Herbes and freshly ground black pepper to the coating and baby potatoes and carrots to the vegetable mix - so easy and delicious. This is on our menu at least twice a month now and the plus is, it's healthy!

My husband can be a bit fussy when it comes to veg but this did the trick this is now a firm favourite

This was lovely. I used squash, courgette, onion and chantenay carrots. Even though I'd sliced the carrots lengthways, they were still a little too firm, so it's probably a good idea to keep any pieces of carrot fairly small. The courgettes were really soft, so they probably would have been ok to add at the same time as the apple and stock! Although various combinations of veg would work with this, it is worth considering cooking times and not necessarily putting everything in the pan at the start. I didn't have a bramley apple but the braeburn I used was fine. The herbs and lemon gave the pork a really nice flavour. As other reviewers has mentioned the juices being a little bland, I decanted them into a jug and stirred in a teaspoon of pork gravy granules. This made it seem a bit more like a 'gravy' and tasted great. I'd definitely make this again.

Was disappointed by this dish. The pork itself doesn't have much taste to it and the juice was somewhat like a plain chicken broth.. the flavour of everything seems to be lacking something...won't do this one again!

Wow! Tried this recipe and it's really yummy! The vegetables and the meat caramelise slightly and taste absolutely delicious. I followed the recipe as it is, and both my son and husband enjoyed this dish. Fortunately there was some leftover for me to finish today :)

Loved it! Not much work to prepare but tastes like you spent hours on it. My husband hates pork fillet but loved the recipe and my 1 year and 3 year old children polished it off in a flash.

Sophisticated and tasty. I inlcuded the apple at the first stage, with the vegetables. I also tried the recipe with different types of vegetables: potatoes and carrots.... delicious.
