Ingredients

  • 1 boneless pork loin roast (3 pounds)
  • 2 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped peeled apples
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat sour cream

Directions

  1. Cut eight to ten 1-in. slits in top of roast; insert garlic slices. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, brown roast on all sides. Transfer to a roasting pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the mustard, vinegar, thyme and sage; brush over roast. In a small saucepan, combine the broth, apple juice and jam. Cook and stir over medium heat until jam is melted; pour over roast. Arrange apples around roast.
  3. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until a thermometer reads 145°, basting occasionally. Remove roast to a warm serving platter; let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
  4. Meanwhile, skim fat from pan juices. Set aside 1/2 cup juices; pour remaining juices and apples into a large saucepan. Combine cornstarch and sour cream until smooth; stir into reserved pan juices. Stir into saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve with roast.
