A rather sweet pork roast. I like this a lot because not only is it delish, but it freezes quite well sliced in the juices. Another Boil-in-bag thing.
- 2 lbs pork tenderloin
- 12 dried black figs, approximately
- 1 cup marsala wine or 1 cup dark port wine (with a drap of Honey)
- 1⁄2 cup boiling onions
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3⁄4 teaspoon allspice
- 1 tablespoon sweet butter (optional)
- Soak the Figs in the Marsala at least an hour.
- Put the Boiler Onions in warm water 20 min, skin cut off the root and stem,cut a X in the bottom.
- Mix 1 TBS Oil, Salt, Pepper,& Allspice then rub the Pork let it stand half an hour.
- Sear the rubbed pork in the rest of the oil.
- Put everything but the butter in a coverable roasting pan.
- Roast covered at 325F for an hour.
- Uncover, drop the oven to 275F and continue roasting to an internal temp of 145F.
- If you want a higher temp for safety do so but I feel 145F plus the 5+ rise after removal is sufficient.
- Remove the meat to a plate.
- Remove the most solid of the Figs and onions.
- Put the liquid in a pot and degrease, I use paper towels.
- Chech the seasoning.
- Whisk in the butter to the hot liquid, I use my hand blender.
- Slice and enjoy, figs and onions on the side.
TW this was amazing, my husband told me this was a mans recipe lol. We both loved the flavor and texture of the meat. We did freeze some to see how it comes out. Thanks TW, great recipes. Its a keeper.
I was looking for recipe that would use up some extra fresh figs. This recipe sounded great overall and I thought it could be adapted for my needs. I used about 8 fresh Brown Turkey Figs and cut the marsala in half and added half chicken stock. I used broiler onions (didn't know what boiling onions were, but thought they may be pearl onions? which my store did not have.) The dish is excellent even with my changes. My needs were to cut the WW Point Value, which I did from 10 points to 6 points per serving. I would definitely make this again. It is truly delicious!
