Add the apples during the last hour of cooking.

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.

Reserve the remaining sauce, and use to top pork, as desired.

Serve with vegetables and rice for a great meal. welcomes your comments below (registration is NOT required).
