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.

Cooking Light AUGUST 2014

  • Yield: Serves 12 (serving size: 3 ounces pork)
  • Hands-on:15 Minutes
  • Total:45 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup ruby port
  • 1/2 cup cherry preserves
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (3-pound) boneless pork loin, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Cooking spray
  • Thyme sprigs (optional)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

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. 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.

4. Place pork on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Roast at 425° for 20 minutes. Brush pork with half of port mixture; roast at 425° for 5 minutes or until a thermometer registers 135°. Remove pork from oven; brush with remaining half of port mixture. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into slices. Top with thyme sprigs, if desired.
