Recipe Review...Pork Loin with Apricot Rosemary Glaze from Betty Crocker

...I found this recipe in an old Betty Crocker Magazine.  It looked good so I decided to give it a go....

I studied the recipe and gathered my ingredients...

3-lb pork loin roast
teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper
cup apricot preserves
cup dry sherry, cooking sherry or apple juice       (I used apple juice)
teaspoons dried rosemary leaves, crumbled
cloves garlic, finely chopped (I never use fresh garlic because I am a garlic wimp....I used garlic powder and very little ) 
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Trim fat from pork. Place pork in 13x9-inch glass baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. In 10-inch skillet, heat preserves, sherry, rosemary and garlic over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened. If necessary, mash apricot pieces with fork into small pieces. Spoon 1/4 cup apricot mixture onto pork (reserve remaining apricot mixture). Insert meat thermometer so tip is in center of thickest part of pork.
  3. Bake uncovered 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes or until thermometer reads 155°F. Cover pork with foil; let stand 15 to 20 minutes or until thermometer reads 160°F. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5°F, and pork will be easier to carve.) Cut pork into slices. Heat remaining apricot mixture; serve with pork. (I cooked mine for 1hour and 30 minutes)
Makes 10 servings

It was a very good recipe.  I would give it an 8.5/10 on my cooking scale.  Next time I will make more of the glaze.  I felt like I needed more on the pork loin.
Happy Cooking Everyone...
Enjoy Your World!

  1. I love the sweet apricot and the earthy garlic combination. Please share this recipe on my foodie friday party today.

  2. Great way to do pork. I found this via Simple Living with Diane Balch. I linked in a salad I made using leftover lamb. Cheers.

    Did you know that your word verification stuff/are you a robot etc is turned on? It would make commenting much easier if you got rid of it.

  3. thanks for sharing.
