Maple Glazed Roasted Pork Loin

 

 

 

 

 

I absolutely LOVE the kinds of recipes that are really easy to put together and then throw in the oven and walk away until dinner time. This pork loin was exactly what I was needing on a busy night last week when Great-Grandmother was staying with us. I didn’t want to be spending too much time in the kitchen, but I did want to serve her something a little nicer than spaghetti :). This pork only took me about 5 minutes to put together, then I popped it in the oven for a couple of hours and at dinner time we had a really nice meal.

The flavors in this are just perfect with pork: maple, apple, onion, thyme, salt. So simple, yet so flavorful. I hope you all really enjoy it like we did!maple glazed roasted pork loin by parsley and pepper

 

Maple Glazed Roasted Pork Loin

by Parsley and Pepper

Ingredients:

Pork Loin

1/2 onion, thinly sliced

1/2 apple, thinly sliced

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 T thyme

Salt

Pepper

 

Directions:

Spread a tablespoon or two of salt on a plate. (Im not giving exact measurements on this for two reasons: your pork might be bigger or smaller than mine was, and you might not like it as salty as we do. I will say though, pork needs ample salt.)Roll your pork in the salt and then place in a loaf pan. Sprinkle with pepper and thyme. Place the onion and apple slices on top and around the sides of the pork. Using a brush, paint maple syrup over the top and set aside for later. Bake at 375 for 1 1/2-2 hours, brushing the additional maple syrup over the top a couple of times during the roasting. Pork is done when the juices run clear and the meat is no longer pink. Remove from the loaf pan and let rest for a few minutes before serving.
