Roast Loin Of Pork With Pan Fried Apples


boneless pork loin (4 to 5 pounds), tied
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground marjoram
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 inches jonagold apples sliced about ΒΌ thick
4 tablespoons unsalted butter


Make incisions in the pork every 2 to 3 inches, and insert garlic slices. In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper, sugar, and marjoram, and coat the pork evenly with the mixture. Cover with plastic wrap, and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sprinkle flour over the pork to lightly coat. Shake to remove any excess flour. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork, and brown on all sides. Transfer pork to a large roasting pan. Add the chopped onions over the pork. Add 1 1/2 cups water to roasting pan, and roast, covered, for 1 hour, basting occasionally, or until pork has an internal temperature of 150 to 155*F (65 - 70*C).
Remove pork loin from roasting pan, and let rest for 10 minutes. Place roasting pan on stove, heat over medium-high heat, and cook pan juices until reduced and thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, set aside for the apple cider gravy.
In a frying pan, melt the butter, and pan fry the apple slices until slightly browned on both sides.
Slice pork, arrange on a serving platter with the apples, and serve with gravy (below).




This pork loin roast is a fantastic recipe that we originally saw on Martha Stewart , when she had her Mom as a guest on the show. Serve with Apple Cider Gravy .
