Honey Roasted Pork Loin


Ingredients:  2 lbs pork loin (boneless), salt and pepper, 1/4 cup honey, 2 tablespoons orange juice, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon thyme, 1/2 cup chicken broth

Directions: Preheat the oven to 375. Season pork and place in a roasting pan. In a separate bowl, mix together the honey, juice, oil and thyme. Pour over pork. Add the broth to the pan. Bake until internal temperature reaches 150 (45-60 minutes). Baste frequently. Strain the pan juices into a saucepan. Reduce until slightly thickened. Serve over the sliced pork.


Wine Pairing: White Bordeaux

Recommended: Carbonnieux (Pessac Leognan) – $43

While a lighter red wine could work, this white Bordeaux, featuring a fully body matching the heartiness of the pork loin and an acidity able to hold up to being paired along with food, will make for a great pairing with this hearty meal.
