New ideas for pork loin?

    NOT a “diet” recipe by any stretch of the imagination, but absolutely delicious and I often make this when I buy a whole loin (and can cut the chops thick):

    If you make it, really do it up and add some andouille to the stuffing.

    I have also made a considerably less heart stopping (and diet friendlier) pork chop stuffed with spinach, mushrooms, onions, a little cheese/cream cheese to hold it together.

    Slow cooked with honey and Dijon mustard. Serve with rice.

    I do something similar but I replace the honey (I don't like honey) with Smuckers sugar free Apricot Preserve, plus the mustard.

    I used to buy that. Would cut 2 roasts and a bunch of chops. Doing these from memory because I tend to cook by eye with them. All recipes imply salt and pepper to taste and

    Sweet and sour pork.
    1-2 lbs pork
    Can pineapple chunks with juice
    Bell pepper chopped
    Onion chopped
    ~1/4 cup Vinegar
    Brown sugar
    Tbsp of soy

    Brown pork
    Add in onion and pepper and cook down some
    Mix pineapple juice and vinegar to make about a cup of liquid. Memory is you get about 3/4 juice in a big can of pineapple chunks. Add soy. Add Brown sugar (this is dependent on how sweet you want it, start with 1tbsp maybe)
    Pour liquid into pan, cover, simmer 30 minutes

    Slow cooker - this works best if you have a larger roast
    2-3 lbs pork
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    Couple Granny Smith apples, sliced
    1/4 cup sherry or dry white wine
    1/4 cider vinegar
    1 cup chicken or veg broth
    2 tbsp brown sugar

    Sear pork put in cooker, add cranberries
    Cook onions until just soft
    Add sherry, vinegar and sugar and cook until starts to get a little syrupy
    Add broth and stir to mix then pour into cooker
    Cook 4-6 hours on low, or however long you want really

    We used to serve it over mashed potatoes, but rice, root mash, cauli rice or cauli mash, whatever should work.

    You can turn pork loin into carnitas, but it’s will need some help staying moist.

    If you have an instant pot or similar, there are some good pork recipes at:

    I like the HK Mushroom gravy one.
