A delicious recipe full of delightful surprises! Marmalade yams are genius: just enough sweet. Apple/onion saute is a 5-star idea in itself. And the gravy tastes so rich, you'd think it had a stick of butter, not just a pat. Wowwed the BF and neighbors: will make again, & for big occassions! - 10/5/10
Fabulous! I substituted yams, used boneless chops, and a sugar-free hot cider packet instead of pre-made cider. Whole meal was fabulous - chop was deliciously juicy and tender, loved the apple and onion mixture though I was surprised by how much of it the recipe made! - 6/14/10
