    This was delicious. I had never cooked with hard cider before so this was an adventure. I selected one that had maple undertones.. the pork tasted really good. I think next time I'll slice up more apples as I really liked those with the pork. I added some of the cider liquid to the pork when I served it as well  -  02 Dec 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was divine and I ate way too much. Yum! I used 16 oz of Guiness and 20 oz of fresh apple cider, and had no Granny Smith, just used the little red apples that I had (didn't need to cook them as long as they were a softer variety). Waiting for the onion to brown was almost torture...can't wait for the leftovers tomorrow! Thanks for the awesome recipe!  -  05 Oct 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was absolutely delicious. I made it with the Angry Orchard cinnamon seasonal and served on oven toasted onion buns. Will make again!!!  -  03 Jan 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
