I have used this exact recipe using a pork loin roast and on another occasion, a whole, boneless turkey breast. Both were delicious, moist, and provided hearty, filling meals for my family. Precisely following the recipe is essential. Do not use quick-cooking rice. It will alter the texture of the final product. Maybe that accounts for the "mussy" rice in another review. Dried cranberries, as specified in the recipe, absorb some of the cooking liquid but remain intact adding delicious, tart dimension to the dish. Canned or fresh cranberries probably break apart and add excess liquid so are not good substitutes. Pears instead of apples? I'm not sure that's a reasonable substitute either. Additional cooking liquid (broth) certainly won't enhance the recipe and could explain the reviewer's "unedible" rice mixture.
