Pork with Apples

Recipe for Pork with Apples
Becky Luigart-Stayner


3 to 4 pounds lean pork (boneless is preferred, but boned chops can be used)
6 cups applesauce
2 tablespoons apple pie spice
6 small red-skin potatoes
4 carrots, peeled and coarsely cut
2 cups white pearl onions, peeled
salt and pepper, to taste
2 firm tart apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced


Cut the pork into large chunks. Put the pork, applesauce, and spice into a large pot. Cover and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cook for 4 hours.

One to 1-½ hours before the cooking finishes, add the potatoes, carrots, and onions and stir. Season with salt and pepper.

Fifteen minutes before the cooking finishes, add the apple slices and stir. Remove the pork, vegetables, and apples to a large platter and pour 1 cup of the sauce over it all. Serve the remaining sauce on the side.

Re comment left that questioned this recipe ....
Assuming the "liquid" is the result of the applesauce and apples?
I am curious, the picture looks great. Prior recipes I have tried were wonderful.

Hi, Alex. The sauce that you serve with it is indeed the result of the applesauce and juices that cumulate while cooking. If you like cinnamon, apples, and pork we think you will enjoy this dish.

Recipe pork with apples

It was terrible, I wasted my money. My family tasted it and pushed it away. It diffently doesn't look like the picture. Where do the juices come from? I love trying new recipes and most of them are tasty but this is a loser.
