Pork Stew With Apple Sauce

Pork belly slices and apple wedges are braised in balsamic vinegar, applesauce, herbs, and seasonings. Once the pork is tender, the apple wedges will soften, and mix apple juice into the applesauce. The natural sugars in the fruit have caramelized as well. You can add squash, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, mushrooms, root vegetables, and other vegetables; it's a very versatile dish. If pork isn't your thing, this will also be delicious with veal, beef, or chicken thighs. With the addition of tart Bramley apples and root vegetables cooked in delightful pork gravy, this dish is truly a winner. Furthermore, preparing a crowd-pleasing dish is simple and will leave your kitchen smelling wonderful.

This pork stew is delicious, and it is served with an excellent apple mixture and apple slices on the side.
