This was absolutely delicious! The pork was tender and flavorful, and the apple jelly topping was a perfect complement. I will be making this one often.

This recipe is so easy, yet so elegant. This can be served for a special occasion. I had to print and hand out several copies.

This is not a true two-star review, but I'm not sure where else to submit this feedback. It would be great if you could revise the "ready in" time to reflect the fact that this needs to marinat...

This recipe is fabulous, many of the reviews claim it's too salty. My guess is that they have used a cooking sherry rather than one purchased at a liquor store. Cooking sherry is very salty. ...
