Apple Stuffed Pork Loin Roast

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 boneless center cut pork loin roast (4 to 5 pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 large tart apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin strips (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup apple cider or apple juice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine garlic, salt, rosemary, thyme and pepper in small bowl. Cutting lengthwise down roast almost to, but not through bottom. Open like a book. Rub half of garlic mixture onto cut sides of pork.

  2. Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add apples and onion; cook and stir 5 to 10 minutes or until soft. Stir in brown sugar and mustard. Spread mixture evenly onto one cut side of roast. Close halves; tie roast with kitchen string at 2-inch intervals. Place roast on rack in shallow roasting pan. Pour apple cider over roast. Rub outside of roast with remaining garlic mixture.

  3. Roast, uncovered, basting frequently with pan drippings 2 to 2-1/2 hours or until thermometer inserted into thickest part of roast registers 155°F.
    Remove roast from oven; let stand 15 minutes before slicing. (Internal temperature will continue to rise 5°F to 10°F during stand time.) Carve roast crosswise to serve.


Serve with broccoli or Brussels sprouts, buttered noodles tossed with grated parmesan, and a tomato and cucumber salad.
