Easy to make and very tasty. I made half the ingredients as it was for two of us, but added a bit more stock and crème fraîche. Used Cox apples which gave a good apple flavour. However I had run out of sage so used dried thyme. Will make make again.

very easy and tasty. did not have any sage so used dried mixed herbs and thickened it with chicken gravy granules instead of creme fraiche. will definitely make again.

So easy to make and very tasty. I added some leek and my family loved it. I only had 320g of pork but it was enough for all 3 of us. Will definitely make this again.

Very pleasant dish, meat was lovely and tender and so simple and easy to make. Didn’t taste very apple-y to me, I might try adding apple juice or even a splash of cider next time!

Lovely flavours but disappointed with the portion size and sauciness. The picture looks much thicker but there is no instruction to reduce the sauce so mine was very thin in comparison. There was no indication of how big to cut the fillet but perhaps it should've been thinner because there wasn't enough pork to stretch to 4 portions. It would be helpful to have grammage on the apples also as I think mine must have been too large for the dish.

Very easy. I pop it in to the slow cooker just before leaving home to collect the kids from school. Served with colcannon, sugar snaps and baby corn

With regards to thickening the sauce, I’ve read somewhere to take the lid off and turn to high (at the end of the cooking time) to thicken the sauce, though may take a while to reach desired consistency!
