Pork Loin with Apple Reduction

(recipe by TheSalmons)

Arrange rack in upper third of the oven and heat to 500oF (yes, this is really hot!)

Depending on size, cut pork into 2-3 pieces. Pat dry, brush with oil and sprinkle them with a bit of salt.

Brown pork pieces on all sides in a frying pan over medium high heat. Keep any juices and brown bits in the pan to be used in the apple reduction.

Place the pork on a metal baking sheet and place in the hot oven. Cook for approx. 15 minutes, checking frequently to make sure it does not overcook. Pork will be done when a meat thermometer reads 145-150. There may still be some pinkness in the meat.

While pork roasts, make apple juice reduction in the frying pan with the brown bits. Add apple juice and apple cider vinegar to the frying pan and cook over high heat until the liquid reduces by 2/3 (about 8-10 min). Reduce heat to medium and stir in maple syrup. Turn off heat on the sauce while pork finishes cooking.

When pork is done, allow it to rest for a few minutes before slicing into 1/2 inch thick pieces. Serve with some apple juice reduction drizzled over the meat and put the remainder into small bowls to be used as a dipping sauce.
