I found this recipe in Real Simple magazine, October 2007. It's just that and yields a great result. My dh is a pork fan and I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. I love the roasted vegetables and fruit, and with a simple salad and crusty bread you're good to go. I've used sweet potatoes instead of white with tasty results as well. Enjoy!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
- 2Using a mortar and pestle or bottom of a heavy pan, crush the fennel seeds.
- 3In a small bowl mix the seeds, garlic, 2 T of the oil, 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.
- 4Rub the mixture over the pork, then place the pork in a large roasting pan.
- 5In a bowl mix the onions, potatoes, pears, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and the remaining oil.
- 6Scatter around the pork and roast until meat is cooked through, approx 60-70 minutes. (I've sometimes had to use 2 one lb pork loins and they are done sooner, so pull the pork out of the pan and let rest while allowing the produce to continue roasting until desired doneness).
- 7Transfer pork to a cutting board and let rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with roasted produce.
