Introduction

If you can find it, a specialty cranberry vinegar is a delicious accent to this recipe. If not, cider vinegar will work fine as a substitute. If you can find it, a specialty cranberry vinegar is a delicious accent to this recipe. If not, cider vinegar will work fine as a substitute.

  • It was ok, but we didn't enjoy the tartness of the vinegar as much as we thought we would. I guess we prefer a dry-roast, garlicky pork roast. - 10/14/10

  • I thought the meat was a little dry; it was a little tart or too much vinegar and I couldn't figure out how much brown sugar to put in since it wasn't listed in the ingredients.
    I don't think I will make this dish again. - 7/1/10

  • i subbed the seedy end of a butternut for the acorn squash, added a sliced onion with my smallish apple. It turned out quite tasty & filling for so few calories, hubby also liked. We added a serving of beets, asparagus, tossed salad and cup of diced fruit & still under 500 cals! Will likely make ag - 2/2/10
