DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Using a mortar and pestle or bottom of a heavy pan, crush the fennel seeds.
  • In a small bowl mix the seeds, garlic, 2 T of the oil, 1 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper.
  • Rub the mixture over the pork, then place the pork in a large roasting pan.
  • In a bowl mix the onions, potatoes, pears, 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and the remaining oil.
  • Scatter 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).
  • Transfer pork to a cutting board and let rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with roasted produce.
