Made this for dinner last nite & both my husband & I agreed it is a nice weeknite meal that can be made quickly and is tasty. We served this with smashed red potatoes & steamed broccoli. I made no changes to the recipe & surprise!!! there was enough sauce for the entire amount of pork (I have found I need to double the sauce a lot of time on CL recipes). I will surely make this again for dinner, didnt think there was enough pizazz for a meal for company.
This was really good and so simple for a weeknight meal.
Note to Nichelleley and anyone else that uses "cooking wines" -- DON'T --they are full of salt and aren't really wine. They often have an off flavor that could ruin your dish.
This is really delicious. I didn't have sherry vinegar so I used 2 teaspoons sherry cooking wine and 2 teaspoons white vinegar. The sauce is indeed a little runny, but still adds a ton of flavor to the pork. I served this with green beans like in the picture and some couscous. Definitely a keeper!!
This was very good - my husband and I both enjoyed it and it is something I will make again. I had unfilted apple juice left over from Chicken with Brussels Sprouts & Mustard Sauce and Cider Scalloped Potatoes, and I ran across this recipe. I used white wine vinegar, and eyeballed the salt and pepper. Delicious, served with Mashed Potatoes and steamed green beans. Still looking to use the remaining apple juice, so moving on the the spice cake with apple glaze and maybe roasted brussel sprouts and apples paired with my next CL meal.
