How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with heavy-duty foil. Warm oil in a large nonreactive skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper, add to skillet and brown on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Do not wipe out skillet. Place meat on baking sheet; roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of meat reads 145°F, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove meat to a cutting board and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 2

Warm 1 Tbsp. butter in the same skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and ginger; sauté until softened, about 3 minutes. Add orange juice; bring to a simmer, scraping up browned bits on bottom of skillet with a wooden spoon. Stir in thyme. Simmer until sauce has thickened and is syrupy, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; swirl in remaining 1 Tbsp. butter. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Slice pork and serve with pan sauce.

This was amazing! I actually never would have tried a recipe like this but a friend gave me a bunch of ginger that she needed to get rid of before she left for vacation and I was looking for a recipe to use it. My husband and I devoured almost the whole pork loin! We declared this a recipe good enough for guests or a special occasion. Plus it's so easy to make!

We love this dish! It's fast, easy and delicious and it seems to get better with every bite! We had garlic herb couscous as a side dish - great choice.
