Spiced Pork Loin with Apples

Started cooking again ever since I came to USA in May. The last post was like 3 years ago! The combination of a change in environment, having too much time on hand and having a oven makes me feel happy all the time. I don't come up with recipes but I do adjust them according to preference and ingredients available in the refrigerator.

Ingredients (for 2)

1lb Pork Loin
1 Apple (Chopped)

For Marinating

1 tsp Canola/Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Salt
1 bulb Garlic (Minced)
1 tsp Parsley Flakes
1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Cumin

For Cooking

1 tsp Canola/Olive Oil
3 tbsp Dry White Wine
1/2 bulb Onion
1 cup Chicken Broth


1. Mix ingredients for marinating together and spread them evenly on the pork loin.
Leave the meat in the refrigerator for 2 hours or more.

2. Preheat the oven to 425.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Pour 1 tsp of olive oil onto it and sear both sides of the pork loin for 2-3 minutes each.

4. Add chicken broth and white wine to the skillet and let it bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

5. Transfer the pork loins onto a chopping board and cut into strips.

6. Add chopped apples and onions to the chicken broth and wine mixture. Saute till apple turns slightly brown.

7. Serve with spinach salad and spaghetti.
