Cherry-Port Glazed Pork Loin Roast

Port reduces to an intensely fruity, syrupy glaze for the pork loin. You can also omit the port and stir 2 tablespoons unsalted chicken stock into the cherry preserves. Fresh sage or rosemary would work in place of the thyme.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. 2. Bring port to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat; cook 10 minutes or until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Stir in cherry preserves; cook 45 seconds. Remove pan from heat; stir in chopped thyme.
  3. 3. Combine garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture evenly over pork. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add pork to pan; cook 8 minutes, turning to brown on all sides.
