Roast Pork Loin with Apples

Yield: 4 servings


2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 2-lb boneless center cut pork loin
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
1 medium onion, thickly sliced
2 carrots, thickly sliced
2 celery stalks, thickly sliced
3 garlic cloves, smashed
3 sprigs thyme
3 sprigs rosemary
4 Tbsp unsalted butter, cold
2 apples, cut into 8 slices
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 C apple cider
2 Tbsp whole grain mustard


  1. In a large oven proof skillet, heat the vegetable oil over high heat. Season the port loin all over generously with salt and pepper. Sear the meat until golden brown on all sides, about 2 - 3 min per side. Transfer the meat to a plate and set aside.
  2. Add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic, herb sprigs, and 2 Tbsp of the butter to the skillet. Stir until the vegetables are browned, about 8 min. Stir in sliced apples, then push the mixture to the sides and set the port loin in the middle of the skillet along with any collected juices on the plate. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast the loin until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meat registers 140° to 150°F, about 30 to 35 min.
