Our Homemade Pork Loin Recipe!


Step 1: Butterfly the pork loin.  Butterflying is when you slice the loin across the middle giving it a butterfly look.  Thinly slice a lemon, make sure the skin is removed so it does not give the pork a bitter taste.  Lay slices on one half of the butterflied pork loin.  If you do not have a fresh lemon you can use dried lemon peel or a bit of citric acid, not too much. 


Step 2: Preparing the stuffing.
Dice shallot and garlic clove.  Lightly saute with olive oil in a small pan till just soft.  Add to panko bread crumbs.  Season with salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, and california onion.  Also make sure to dice a small apple, this does not get sauteed it is added in raw.


Step 3: Spread breading mixture over half of the butterflied pork loin.  Close the butterflied pork loin so it looks like it did originally.


Step 4: Tie the pork loin as shown with butcher twine.  Sprinkle the top with salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, paprika, and california onion.

Step 5: Cook at the 375 for 35 minutes.  Then raise the temperature to 425 for 20 extra minutes. (internal temperature should reach at least 155 for the pork loin to be ready).

Here is an optional gravy you can make for when the pork loin is resting.


One vidalia onion sauteed in pan drippings
Tablespoon of lemon curd jelly
Chicken stock
Balsamic vinegar

Directions:
Saute vidalia onion in the pan drippings.  I used the pan that the pork loin was roasted in and put it on top of the stove to make the gravy, so I do not lose any of the flavors from the drippings.  Saute until soft.  Add chicken stock, balsamic vinegar (I used fig flavored, very yummy), and table spoon of lemon curd.  Simmer until reduced and thick.
Add onto pork loin when it is already done cooking, and resting, and sliced.
Enjoy!! :) This was absolutely delicious and I highly recommend it! This was something my son and I cooked together it was a lot of fun and tasted wonderful!  Everyone enjoyed it even my niece who's typing this for me ! Hahahahaha!
