Roasted Pork Loin with Apples and Cinnamon Recipe Photo - Diabetic Gourmet Magazine Recipes

Ingredients

  • 2 pound boneless pork loin roast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 apples, cored, peeled and sliced into wedges


Directions

  1. Rub pork loin with olive oil, pepper and 1/2 teaspoon each ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. In a small bowl, stir together the other half of the spices with the wine, honey, lemon juice and apple wedges.
  2. Roast pork in shallow pan in a 350 degrees F. oven for 40 minutes (20 minutes per pound), until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F.
  3. Remove roast from oven; let rest about 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, simmer apple mixture in a small saucepan until apples are tender; stir in any pork roast juices. Serve sliced roast with apples and sauce.

Notes:

The trio of ginger-nutmeg-cinnamon will remind you of pumpkin pie. The spices and apples create a classic flavor that marries well with pork. Serve with baked sweet potatoes and roasted Brussel sprouts.
