Roast Pork Loin with Pepper Jelly Glaze

Don't let the "Pepper Jelly" scare you away. The pepper jelly adds a great flavor to the glaze with just a slight heat. Marinate the pork overnight to build depths of flavor. Make this for a special dinner. It is really moist and delicious.

Instructions
 

Marinate the Pork:

  • Combine olive oil, wine, oregano, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper in a sealable plastic bag. Add pork to marinade, seal bag, and rotate to coat pork. Refrigerate overnight, turning bag at least once.

Prepare the Glaze:

  • Cornstarch mixture: Whisk cornstarch and water together in a small bowl and set aside.
    Heat 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, onion, and carrot. Cook and stir 5-7 minutes, or until veggies are soft. Add salt and cumin. Cook for 1 minute. Add broth, pepper jelly, and vinegar. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Bring mixture back to a boil and add cornstarch mixture. Cook and whisk for 1 minute, or until thickened. Remove from heat and cover.
    Note: Glaze can be made ahead and refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Roast the Pork:

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Have prepared glaze at room temperature (if you made ahead).
  • Remove the pork from marinade (discard) and season all sides with the Cajun blend. Heat 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to hot pan and brown on all sides, about 6-8 minutes total.
  • Transfer browned pork to prepared baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the glaze over the pork every 10 minutes for 25-35 minutes, or until roast reaches 145°F in thickest part.
  • Transfer roasted pork to a cutting board and tent with foil. Let rest 15 minutes. Slice the pork and serve with remaining glaze.
