Total Time - 1 hour (Active Time: 20 minutes) / Makes 4 Servings

Cooking Sequence

  • Prepare pork and begin to roast - 15 minutes
  • Prepare salad; serve - 45 minutes

Caramel-Apple Pork


1 medium tart green apple
1/2 cup fresh pre-diced onions
1/2 cup sweet & sour red cabbage (drained)
5 caramel squares
2 lb center-cut pork loin
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cut apple into small bite-size pieces.
  1. Combine onions, cabbage, apples, and caramel squares. Create cavity for stuffing by using a long, thin sharp knife to cut an “X” through center of roast, making two lengthwise slits (without piercing opposite end). Insert handle of wooden spoon to make sure hole is open. Fill with apple mixture, using handle to pack mixture in (wash hands). (Any extra stuffing can be placed in roasting pan with the stuffed pork.)
  2. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Season outside of pork with salt and pepper. Place oil in pan, then add pork; cook 2–3 minutes on each side.
  3. Transfer pork to roasting pan, adding any extra stuffing around pork; roast pork 30–35 minutes or until stuffing is 165°F. Let stand 5–10 minutes; slice and serve. (Makes 6 servings.)
