Well seasoned pork is first pan-seared, then roasted in the oven alongside a colorful, flavorful medley, featuring Granny Smith apples, red onions, sweet potatoes, lots of garlic, fresh sage, ground allspice, salt, and pepper, until it's cooked through. After the apple mixture is ready, reduce the sauce with some apple cider vinegar as well as apple cider, then let it thicken up with a little bit of butter at the very end. It's one of our favorite fall entrées that's impressive enough to serve at any dinner party when the leaves begin to change color and apples are in season.
