    Fabulous!! I made this for my whole family and everyone wanted seconds. I suggest serving with some cooked apples. Also, first time stuffing any meat and really not so hard. Spice rub was great. Definitely recommended!

    This dish was awesome. I will say that I only used half the size of pork loin it called for but all of the spice mixture. I believe if you use more pork you will have to make twice the spice mixture in order to evoke the flavor this recipe intends. It also got rave reviews from my neighbor insisting it would be a great holiday dish.

    I've made this for several Christmases -- it's absolutely wonderful. I substitute dried cranberries for the dried apricots, to give it more of a holiday touch. And it's easy enough to make it for a regular Sunday dinner. I made this again today and agree that you very likely will have to double the stuffing portion of the recipe.

    Very good recipe. The cider sauce didn't add much. Next time I will just heat additional apple cider and spoon over sliced pork. Also will forego the apple wedges on the bottom of the pan. I really don't think they added to the dish, especially since you are to just discard them after cooking the dish. They just burned on the bottom and were a mess to clean up.

    This recipe was delicious! I helped my husband cook it, but glad he did the tieing portion, because I would have become easily frustrated with it, other than that, the recipe is just a little time consuming to prepare and cook. I agree that this is would be a great holiday dish, maybe with some cranberries and green beans. I think we might make this for Christmas dinner this year. I agree with the other review about the cider sauce, it didn't pack a whole lot of punch, but maybe it wasn't supposed to. Delicious, delicious, delicious, just make sure you have about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to prepare and cook, but oh so worth it!
