How to Make It

  2. Reduce heat to medium; add remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Add onion and garlic; sauté 2 minutes or just until tender. Add apple and next 3 ingredients; bring to a boil. Return pork and juices to pan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 50 minutes or until pork is done, turning after 25 minutes.
