This is the recipe I said was coming later. It’s delicious. The apricots were tangy and not too sweet. I also love Chinese five spice it’s such a different seasoning that you don’t taste too often but is super flavorful.
Stuffed Pork Loin
~3 lbs of pork
1/2 an onion diced
1/2 cup of pecans chopped
6 dried apricots diced
4 cloves of garlic
3 tsp of chinese five spice
5 long strips of bacon
Mix onion, pecans, apricots,garlic, and half of the seasoning together in a bowl.
Cut a slit into the loin almost all the way across the width of the loin.
Stuff the slit with your nut mixture.
Carefully pat the mixture down and cover with other half of loin. pin the pork closed with some long toothpicks. Use remaining seasoning on the out side of the pork and add a bit of salt. Brown both sides of your pork being careful to not let your pork open up spilling all of it’s contents when flipping. I accidentally let mine get a bit too dark here but it was still good. Wrap your browned loin in bacon. Place back in pan and transfer to the oven at 350.
Serve with some Creamed spinach from this recipe. enjoy!
