Apple Pork with Cashews

I came accross this recipe while drooling my way through which is a cooking website I have to say I spend way to much time on.  But my time spent is always well worth it in my opinion!!

With an amazing combination of apple, soy and ginger the pork was cooked perfectly - still tender and succulent.    The sauce was amazing, a combination of apple and orange, neither overpowering the other.  I loved the crunchiness of the cashews which just finalised the dish.

Served with Braised Potatoes and steamed vegetables I was completely satisfied.
