  • Made this for my husband's birthday, and he couldn't be happier. It's a bit labor intensive but it will definitely be made again because it is sooooo good. - 12/28/14

  • 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
