Ratings and Reviews

“I was drawn by the apples with apple juice and coarse-grain mustard. the taste of the sauce was very good! i found that the pork chops cooked more quickly than the recipe. i browned on only one side and then checked the temperature after the 8 minutes of braising. to my surprise, the temp was much higher than the expected 145 degrees. next time, i'll check the temperature after only 4-5 minutes into the braise. i will make this again!!”
