Fruit-Stuffed Pork Roast with Apples

Directions

  1. For stuffing, in a medium bowl combine dried fruit, chopped onion, and vinegar. Add enough boiling water to cover. Let stand, covered, 30 minutes; drain. Stir in bread crumbs, 2 Tbsp. of the melted butter, the 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, and cloves.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Untie meat and trim off fat. To butterfly, make a lengthwise cut down center of each loin, cutting to within 1/2 inch of other side. Spread open. Make another lengthwise slit to the right of first cut and a third slit to the left. Using flat side of a meat mallet, flatten each loin between two pieces of plastic wrap until 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
  3. Place meat rectangles side by side with long sides overlapping about 1 inch. Sprinkle lightly with additional salt and pepper. Spread stuffing onto meat. Starting from a long side, roll up into a spiral. Retie meat.
  4. Place meat on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Brush whole onions and apple wedges with remaining 1 Tbsp. melted butter; place onions in pan around meat. If desired, sprinkle meat and onions with thyme.
  5. Roast 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 hours or until meat registers 145 degrees F, adding apples and brushing meat, onions, and apples with jelly the last 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Cover meat with foil; let stand 15 minutes before slicing. Top with additional thyme (if desired) and serve with onions and apples.

From the Test Kitchen

*Tip

If you can't find mixed dried fruit bits, substitute 1 1/2 cups snipped dried apricots, sweetened dried cranberries, and/or golden raisins.

**Tip

While you can just stir the jelly and brush it on, it will be smoother if melted first in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds.
