Preparation Instructions:
Pork and Root Vegetables
• Combine olive oil, garlic, onions, salt and pepper into a small bowl. Pat pork loin dry and rub with mixture. Cover and chill, 1 hour minimum.
• Preheat oven to 350°F. Heat Dutch oven or heavy pan over high heat. Add pork and brown on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium and add Simplot RoastWorks Roasted Root Vegetables, pork stock and dill. Bring to boil. Cover and bake until tender, or internal temperature of pork reaches 165°F.
• Remove pork and let rest about 15 minutes prior to slicing. Remove vegetables and place onto a decorative plate. Keep warm. Adjust seasoning of stock with salt and pepper and serve on the side.
• When plating, top pork with 4 oz of Flame-Roasted Fuji Apple and Cranberry Compote (see below.)
Apple-Cranberry Compote
• Whisk apple cider, corn syrup and brown sugar in heavy saucepan. Boil over high heat, reducing to 1 cup. Add 4 oz of butter and whisk until melted. Remove from heat.
• Melt remaining butter in heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add cranberries, bourbon and sugar; stir until cranberries begin to pop. Fold in Simplot RoastWorks Flame-Roasted Fuji Apples and add reduced cider mixture. Boil until further reduced to syrup consistency, about 5 minutes. Serve warm.
