Pork and apples are a classic combination, so naturally an apple stuffed pork loin makes perfect sense – especially apples that have been sauteed with onions and a fragrant blend of Moroccan spices.
This recipe is from Mark Bittman’s new book Mark Bittman’s Kitchen Matrix. The book is based off his New York Times Magazine Matrix series, where he prepares one ingredient/dish several ways.
Stuffing the pork was easier than expected. You start by inserting a thin knife into both ends of the pork loin, then you use the handle of a wooden spoon and push it through. Once the hole is made I used a wooden spoon with a wider handle to make the hole larger.
The pork was delicious, actually even better than I expected. The spices were so perfect with the apples and onions, I will certainly be making this again. A great dish if you're entertaining and also perfect for the holidays.
