This was delicious. I had never cooked with hard cider before so this was an adventure. I selected one that had maple undertones.. the pork tasted really good. I think next time I'll slice up more apples as I really liked those with the pork. I added some of the cider liquid to the pork when I served it as well

This was a great recipe and super easy. Next time I make it, I will use 1/4 cup butter instead of 1/2 cup to make it a bit more healthy.




This was absolutely delicious. I made it with the Angry Orchard cinnamon seasonal and served on oven toasted onion buns. Will make again!!!
