Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I hated everything about it. I hated everything about it. I made it, it looked like the picture, and I expected it to taste like it was food, but it tasted like cardboard. The apples were bleached out and nasty, there was way too much water (I even added extra rice after the intial cooking time to soak up more liquid), the mushrooms over-powered everything (and I like mushrooms), and it was just missing a lot of favor for so many ingredients. Completely disappointing when Kraft's recipes are usually so good. I guess you can't win 'em all.

Definitely a very easy and filling meal with the rice in there but I added a side of steamed green beans to finish off with a very colorful plate. It wasn't a very bold tasting meal and I even added salt & pepper to both sides of my chops before browning plus added 1 more TBSP of the balsamic vinaigrette. If you are looking for something more mild tasting, this would be a good one to make. I felt like there should have been some sour kraut with it or something to add some more zing.

LOVED the simplicity of this meal-we had fresh apples from a local orchard so I was eager to use them in a recipe, when I saw this in the fall issue, I knew we were on to something. I thought the meal was easy to prepare, fast and the ingredients were on hand however, my family(like another reviewers) also found it to be a little bland and were not terribly excited about it. I think we will spice it up a bit next go around!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I thought it was bland, but easy. I thought it was bland, but easy. I wish I had read the other comments before I made it. I would have added soy sauce (sounds perfect!) I have leftovers, and hopefully they will reheat well with a little soy sauce added. I used granny smith apples instead of red, hoping it would add more flavor. I couldn't tell if it did or not. I didn't have a problem with runniness, but perhaps that is because I let it simmer a long time.

I agree with the comments regarding bland flavour & too much liquid. I followed it exactly, as well, and had both issues. My husband & daughter both thought the combination of balsamic/thyme smelled awful - & didn't taste much better. I won't be trying this again - I don't think this one can be saved even with 'tweaking'.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was one of the worst dishes I have ever tried. This was one of the worst dishes I have ever tried. The recipe calls for KRAFT Special Collection Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing, in addition it calls for 1 tsp. of thyme (that just didn't make alot of sense to me). Where is the salt and pepper. You can smell all of the herbs but the entire dish was just too bland for my familie's taste. I am going to give this one a thumbs down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you've never tried pork with apples, you should, the tastes are very complimentary. If you've never tried pork with apples, you should, the tastes are very complimentary. I cut the recipe in half, but added a little pepper as well. Very easy and very good. The next time I do this recipe though I would marinate the pork with the apples and dressing. I don't really get why some thought that it was bland, because I found it to have a wonderful flavor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My family doesn't like mushcrooms so I used some celery instead. My family doesn't like mushcrooms so I used some celery instead. They liked the flavor, but next time I make this dish I will definitely peel the apples first - once cooked, the peels come loose and are swimming around in the rice. Also, the recipe does not say to cover it after adding the rice and apples, but I did since I didn't see how the rice could cook otherwise.
