1/3 (12 fluid ounce) bottle
hard apple cider

This recipe was pretty good. I found the 'sauce' to be more like a thick applesauce than a gravy type of sauce but it was flavorful. I doubt I'd bother food processing the mixture next time and would just keep it whole and pour over the pork.
I did think that 45 minutes was too long - it was slightly overdone but maybe my loin was slightly smaller. I'd check it after 30 minutes and go from there.
We thought it was bland. There are no seasonings in this. I like a spiced brown crust on my meat to give it some flavor! The sauce was very bland as well. I guess the word "bland" sums it up for us. I'm glad others liked and enjoyed it but it just isn't our type of dish. I won't be making it again but appreciate your sharing it. :o)
I made this for my fiance with great results. I made some slight modifications to the recipe however: used apple cider instad of "hard" cider, added a clove of garlic when browning the pork, used McCormick's Montreal Seasoning on the pork while browning, added a 1/4 of 14 oz can of saurkraut to the apple mixture before baking, and ended up making the sauce more of a gravy by thickening it with flour in the end). Served with mash potatoes and steamed asparagus. The gravy has a sweet taste and was delicous and the pork was excellent - very tender. I'd make it again. My fiance loved it.
I really liked this. I was halfway through making it when I realized that I needed a blender (which I don't have), so I didn't puree the onions and apples. I actually prefer it this way, I think, because I like having the pieces to eat along with the pork. The sauce doesn't really get thick, though. It does *thicken* but it's not a thick sauce. Still, very yummy. I'll definitely make it again.
We loved this! Decided to make it but did not want to run to the market for a few items I did not have. I had a jar of Palaner Fuji apples in the juice I used instead of the cider and a fresh apple. I added a splash of apple cider vinegar to cut the sweetness of the juice. We did not puree the apples and onions as they had cooked down quite a bit. Served with fresh steamed asparagas for a low carb dinner. Wine was a Pinot Noir which tasted great. Saving this one for when we have guests!
Loved this. The sauce was sweet, but not too sweet. It had a good apple flavor, with an undertone of onion. I used Hornsby's hard cider in Crisp Apple flavor. I found that some hard ciders seem to have more of an apple flavor than others, so go for the more apple ones. The sauce was excellent over noodles. The pork was extremely tender, and the sauce complemented it perfectly. It was a really nice autumn dish.
Love this recipe and have added it to my regulars. You have to use the hard cider though. Apple cider is too sweet. Also I use a little more heavy cream than the recipe calls for and I use a hand blender to puree the apples and onions right in the pot.
A really high quality result from a novice like me! I was totally impressed, this dish goes really well with potato wedges or fresh veg.
I used Pork Chops instead of loin and reduced the oven time to 25-30 minsand it seemed fine.
I also scaled the servings to 2 and there was enough sauce for at least 4 so tonight I'm using the left-overs as a pasta sauce. :)
