From Good Food Magazine. Easy to prepare and tastes great. Original recipe calls for apricot jam but I used what I had on hand which was orange marmalade.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons apricot jam
  • 2 lbs pork loin, skin and fat cut off
  • 2 ounces fresh breadcrumbs (dried may be used)
  • 2 ounces porridge oats
  • 1 tablespoon thyme (or leaves from 3 sprigs fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400°F.
  2. Brush the jam all over the pork loin.
  3. In a shallow dish, mix together the breadcrumbs, oats and thyme.
  4. Roll the pork in the mixture to cover it and place the pork into a baking dish. Press any excess breadcrumb mixture over the pork that may have fallen off.
  5. Drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Roast for 1 1/4 hours until cooked through. Leave to rest, uncovered for 10 minutes.
  7. Slice and serve.
