Roast Pork with Cider Cream Sauce

Roast Pork with Cider Cream Sauce Author: Canadian Living Credits: Roast Pork with Cider Cream Sauce

A golden crust and apple-flavoured sauce add to this dish's appeal for entertaining. Choose a long, slender roast (rather than short and thick) because even though they cook in the same time, the slender one will be easier to slice and look more attractive on plates.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pork loin centre roast boneless rolled and tied
Cider Cream:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 Granny Smith apple peeled, quartered and thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 cup alcoholic or nonalcoholic apple cider
  • 1 cup sodium-reduced chicken stock
  • 3/4 cups whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Method

In small bowl, mix oil, garlic, sage, thyme, salt and pepper; rub all over roast. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Place roast on rack in roasting pan. Roast in 375°F (190°C) oven (or 350°F/180°C in convection oven) until meat thermometer inserted into centre registers 160°F (71°C), about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 15 minutes before slicing.

Cider Cream: Meanwhile, skim fat from pan juices. Add butter and melt over medium heat; fry apples and onion, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add cider and bring to boil, scraping up any brown bits. Stir in stock, cream and mustard; boil until reduced by half, about 8 minutes.

In small bowl, combine cornstarch with 1 tbsp (25 mL) cold water; whisk into sauce and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Serve with pork.
