I am also from the Albany, NY area so I had to try this! Very good. I didn't have Thyme so I used a mixture I had on hand that had thyme in it. My apples and potatoes came out over-soft, even though I followed the recommended times, BUT... It was very tasty and my husband cleaned his bowl quickly! He said it's a definite do again!

This was a great recipe for leftover pork tenderloin. My husband and I both liked it.

This turned out very good. Pork was very tender. Be sure to keep the potatoes on the small side and the apples on the thick side, otherwise the potatoes will be uncooked and the apples will be mush!
