I love pork loin because it’s relatively easy to make. The worst part is just cutting off the fat, and that weird white thing on it, but then you just add any yummy spices and bake, roast, slow cook or grill. I also think it’s great to make because it make for awesome leftovers, and as you know, I love my leftovers!
Anyway, this was the first time I had made this Morcaccan style loin and Scott and I loved it. To be honest, the kids didn’t like the “stuff on the sides”, which was just the apples and onions, and they eat then all the time, so I’m sure not sure why they didn’t love it? You may want to give you kids just the meat and not top it with the juice and stuff that went with it. Or, maybe yours will love it. Personally, I thought that was what made this so good!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 small apple
- 1 small onion, chopped (I used TJ’s prepacked onion with shallots & garlic)
- 1 small container or about 1/4 cup of apple sauce
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 2-3 lbs pork loin
- 1 tbsp coconut oil or butter
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp ground paprika
- 1 tsp ground turmeric
- 2 tsp celtic sea salt
- 1 tbsp ground pepper
Here’s what you need to do to get ready:
1. Clean pork loin and cut off fat and set aside.
2. Mix spices together in a small bowl.
3. Chop apple and onions and set aside.
4. Preheat over to 400.
Next you need to:
1. Rub spices onto pork loin well.
2. Turn large pan on high and add butter or oil. Add pork and sear on each side for about 1-2 minutes.
3.Put pork in large glass dish
4. Add chicken broth to the sides of the loin (so as to not pour off spices)
5. Pour apple sauce to cover the loins
6. Add chopped apple and onion on top
7. Cover with foil and bake for approximately 25-35 minutes until no longer pink. Be sure to not over cook. And enjoy!
