  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 3 ounces pork and about 2 teaspoons sauce)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 (4-pound) boneless pork loin roast, trimmed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400º.

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 4 minutes.

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add apricot mixture; cook 10 minutes or until apricots are soft. Stir in honey and thyme. Place mixture in a food processor; process until smooth, scraping sides. Reserve 1/2 cup apricot mixture to serve with pork.

Place pork on the rack of a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Brush 1/2 cup apricot mixture over pork. Bake at 400º for 10 minutes.
