This easy weeknight meal is full of flavor and Glory Foods Fried Apples. This pork loin is sure to make everyone happy, even the kids.
(3 lb.) center cut pork loin roast; butterflied
3 (15 oz.) cans Glory Foods Fried Apples
1/4 cup Calvados (apple brandy) or regular brandy
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tbs. minced fresh chives
Heat oven to 425°F.
Drain Glory Foods Fried Apples (reserving 1/2 cup liquid) and transfer to a bowl. Add brandy, honey, pumpkin pie spice and chives to the apples; allow to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Lay pork out on a work surface and (using a slotted spoon) spoon 2 cups marinated apples onto the center of pork. Fold meat over apples and secure with kitchen twine or thick wooden skewers that have been soaked in water.
Transfer pork to a baking pan just large enough to hold the roast, and sprinkle with pork seasoning. Bake for 20 minutes to render the fat.
Carefully take roast out of the oven and drain fat (discard). Spoon remaining apples onto pork; lower heat to 325°F and continue to bake for an additional 60-70 minutes (until meat thermometer reaches 155°F; pork will continue to cook as it rests).
Stir any excess liquid from marinated apples into the reserved fried apple liquid. During roasting time, glaze the top of pork roast twice with the apple liquid.
To serve, slice pork into 3/4” slices after it has rested for 15 minutes.
