Instructions
Apple mixture:
  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. In a large sauté pan on medium-high heat, sauté apples in butter for 6–8 minutes. Stir in cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Cook for an additional 3–4 minutes. In a small cup, mix cornstarch and vanilla extract until dissolved. Stir into apple mixture and cook for an additional two minutes on medium-high heat. Turn off heat and set mixture aside.
Phyllo dough pastries:
  1. Lightly grease a large 6-muffin tin pan. Starting with the first sheet of phyllo dough, brush each side with melted butter then dust with the powdered sugar and cinnamon mix. Continue until all 6 sheets have been buttered and dusted with sugar and cinnamon mix, stacking one sheet on top of the other as you go. Cut each stack into 6 squares. Line the bottom and sides of each muffin cup using one stack of squares, leaving some of the squares hanging over the edges of the muffin cups. Fill each phyllo-lined muffin cup halfway to three-quarters full with the apple mixture (this will depend on how big the apples are cut), making sure each phyllo-lined muffin cup has equal amounts of apple mixture. Fold excess phyllo dough over the apples in each muffin cup. Bake in preheated oven at 350° F for 8–10 minutes or until golden brown. Optional: Garnish with powdered sugar, fresh mint sprigs and/or whipped cream.

Instructions
Cherry Marmalade Glaze:
  1. Mix all glaze ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until marmalade is melted and starts to simmer. Turn off heat and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400° F.
Apple Stuffing:
  1. Sauté all ingredients in canola oil except for chicken stock for 2–3 minutes in large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Slowly add chicken stock until moist, but not too wet. (You may not need it all, depending on how much juice is released from the apples during cooking.)
  2. Remove from heat and chill to room temperature.
Pork Loin Directions:
  1. Meanwhile, cut five slits about 1 inch apart along the length of the loin, forming several pockets. Stuff each pocket with about 2 tablespoons of stuffing (there should be a little left over). Tie one long piece of twine around the length of the loin and tie additional twine across the shorter length as needed to keep the stuffing in place.
  2. Place remaining stuffing on a baking sheet tray, place tied stuffed pork on top and bake for 45 minutes at 400° F or until you reach an internal temperature of 160° F.
  3. Spoon on the dried cherry marmalade glaze, shut oven heat off and let rest in oven for 10–15 minutes. Remove pork loin, slice into portions then serve.

  1. 1. Boil bone marrow bones and beef shank in a pressure cooker for about 1-1/2 hours or less with a pressure cooker (until the meat is tender and bone marrow is no longer red) 2. Skim off the scum as it floats toward the top. Carefully take out the bones and meat with a wide strainer spoon. 3. Strain the broth for a clearer soup base. Some would discard the broth and start over with fresh water and add beef flavoring. Combine the strained broth with the bones and beef in a deep skillet and add onion, garlic, and peppercorns. 4. Bring back to a boil and skim off excess fat as it accumulates, however, leave some for the flavor. 5. Reduce heat to low. Add corn cobs and chayote. Simmer until corn is done and chayote is tender. 6. Add salt/pepper/fish sauce to taste. 7. Add the bok choy and napa cabbage last to keep it bright green but cooked enough for serving. 8. Serve over hot rice.
