It definitely is a sweet main dish so don't forget to make some sides to even it out. Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice went very well. I made a few teeny changes no mace cranberries or apple juice... so I used cardamom dried dates and apple cider. For a prettier presentation slice the squash into french fry shapes and leave the apples in wedge shapes. All the cubing is ugly and a lot more work...
I love this dish. It has all the wonderful flavors of fall. The butternut squash takes on a wonderful sweet taste due to the brown sugar and spices. I used apple cider the last time I made it as that is what I had on hand and it made the flavor even more intense.
Wonderful holiday dish! I'm not usually one for pork but... WOW! For the sake of presentation I kept the pork tenderlion whole (instead of cubing it as the recipe suggests). I cooked it in the oven for between 1-2 hours (you need to monitor it since ovens differ). I also couldn't find any butternut squash so I omitted that completely. Finally since I didn't want to go out and buy cloves and mace just for this recipe I used Allspice instead. It was fantastic! I'll definately be making this one again!

My guests were impressed by this dish and it was very tasty. It was also a lot of work! I liked making something out-of-the-ordinary but I will not go through the effort of preparing this dish on a regular basis - special occasions only. Glad to add it to my recipe box though!
Great recipe for a fall day. I only made two small changes; I omitted the salt and pepper and added them later and instead of apple juice I used apple spiced wine. This one is a keeper! Excellent leftovers as well if there is any left!
Great recipe! It was delicious and tender. I had fresh cranberries (yay fall!) so used those reduced the apple subbed cranberry juice and maple syrup and served with egg noodles and steamed greens and it was outstandingly scrumptious.
This sounded so good and what few reviews it had gotten were all good. I didn't like it much at all. I love squash and pork but their flavor was completely overwhelmed by the spices. It was like having potpourri for dinner. Might have made a good salsa omitting the squash for a whole pork tenderloin.
