I made this the other night and we all loved it! We had my husband's parents over and they thought it was great! I used heavy cream because I didn't have half and half and I had one Granny Smith apple and one Pink Lady apple. I made glazed carrots and sugar snap peas for the sides. I would definately make this again!
Pork Medallions with Double-Apple Sauce
Half-and-half finishes the sauce of tart green Granny Smith apples and sweet cider, richly mellowing the flavors. If serving wine, chardonnay is a good match for this menu. You can substitute broccoli for the Broccolini, if desired.
