When pork is fork tender, put it on a carving board, tent it with foil, and let is rest for about 10 minutes before slicing.

While the pork rests, stir the cornstarch mixture, little by little, into the sauce and cook about 8-10 minutes until thickened.

Serve the pork slices with a spoonful of sauce and apples on top.
