This is really good. I has a nice sweet flavor but not over powering. I served it with noodles but it really needs to be served mashed potatoes to catch the juices. Will fix this again. Read More

Delicious and Very Easy to do! Has a great sweet flavor to the sauce. I didn't know if I should peel the apples so I did half with skin and half without. The apple pieces just disintegrated in the sauce and I found the leftover apple skin pieces amongst the shredded pork. I'd skin them when I make this again. And I WILL make this again! Read More

I have made this a couple times now and loved it. I made it with already shredded pork so cooked the apples and onions in olive oil then added the cooked pork and sauce warmed them together and served over rice. Read More

I have a stovetop recipe that is similar except called for rosemary which I also added to this. I know it would have been delicious as well without this addition; I just have a thing for rosemary and it complements the pork and apple flavors in my opinion. Otherwise followed this recipe to a T. So good; a real comfort meal! And this pork was more tender than my stovetop rendition. Read More

I wasn't sure what kind of reviews this would get with my family but they all loved it so 5 stars. Husband said this was the best kind of shredded pork I've made. A very different taste than your typical BBQ green chile standard pork. We served it over mashed potatoes and I made brown gravy to go with. Also I had frozen shredded pork loin so I just made the sauce added apples & onion and heated up on the stove. Ready in minutes with pre made pork. Read More

I didn't have Apple butter on hand. I improvised with apple sauce brown sugar cinnamon and a little clove warmed and thickened with a little corn starch. My Husband really liked it! Read More
