To prepare the Pork Loin you’ll need Pork Loin Roast, Kosher Salt, Ground Black Pepper, Dried Sage, Medium Apples, Calvados, or Apple Brandy, Low-Sodium Chicken Broth, Apple Juice, and Heavy Cream.

At the Cooks site you’ll find a huge selection of recipes to please all Tastes, Diets, or Cuisines so be sure to check it out today for any of recipe needs! Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Apple and Cornbread-Stuffed Pork Loin with Roasted Apple Gravy

Recipe adapted from Bruce Aidells’ Complete Book of Pork, courtesy of Harper Collins Publishers. “A full-flavored American Pale Ale is the perfect compromise between the meatiness of the pork and the rich fruitiness of the baked apples,” says Aidells.

Recipe Ingredients:
Cornbread and Apple Stuffing:
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup smoked ham, finely chopped, or diced smoked sausage
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup apples, peeled and diced 1/4-inch
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1 1/2 cups homemade cornbread, crumbled and dried or dried cornbread stuffing mix
1/4 cup apple juice

4 pound pork loin roast, boneless
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried sage
3 medium apples, peeled, halved, cored and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1/4 cup Calvados, or apple brandy
1 1/4 cup homemade chicken stock, or canned low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup apple juice, or cider
1/4 cup heavy cream

Cooking Directions:
1 – For Stuffing: Heat butter in a heavy medium skillet over medium-low heat; add ham or sausage and cook 3 minutes. Add onion, celery and a pinch each of salt and pepper; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are quite soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in diced apple and cook 1 minute. Transfer apple mixture to a large bowl. Sprinkle with sage and stir in cornbread crumbs, apple juice and egg. The mixture should be moist but not wet. Add more apple juice if the mixture seems dry. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
2 – Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). To double butterfly the pork loin, lay the meat, fat-side down, on a work surface and make a horizontal lengthwise cut two-thirds of the way into the depth of the loin and about 1 inch from the long edge nearest you, taking care not to cut all the way through. Flip the loin over so that the cut you just made is opposite you. Make another lengthwise cut, again 1 inch from the edge. Open up the two cuts so you have a large rectangle of meat whose diameter is roughly 3 times the thickness of the meat. Place fat-side down and cover with a sheet of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a cleaver or a meat pounder, gently flatten the meat to an even thickness.
3 – Remove plastic wrap and spread apple stuffing evenly over the meat, leaving a generous 3/4–inch border. Roll up meat jelly-roll style so that stuffing is in a spiral pattern. Tie rolled roast at 2-inch intervals with butcher’s twine.
4 – Combine 2 teaspoons salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and remaining sage and sprinkle over roast. Lay the sliced apples on the bottom of a roasting pan just a bit larger than the roast and set the roast, fat-side up, on the apples. Put roast in the oven and cook for 15 minutes, turn the oven down to 325°F (160°C) and roast for 45 minutes. Check the internal temperature of the roast with an instant-read thermometer: The roast is done when it reaches 145°F (162.7°C). If it is not ready, continue to roast, checking the temperature every 10 minutes. When the roast is done, transfer it to a cutting board, tent loosely with foil, and let rest for at least 10 minutes while you make the sauce.
5 – With a slotted spoon, transfer the apples in the roasting pan to a bowl and keep warm. Pour off any fat from the roasting pan, leaving the meat juices on the bottom. Put pan over medium-high heat, add Calvados and deglaze pan allowing the alcohol to burn off, about 15 seconds. Transfer to a small saucepan and add stock, apple juice and cream. Increase heat to high and bring liquid to a boil. Simmer, stirring, until reduced by half. Taste for salt and pepper. Keep the sauce warm while you carve the pork roast.
6 – Remove twine from the roast and cut it into 1/2-inch thick slices. (If you cut the slices too thin, they will fall apart.) Arrange the pork on a serving platter. Spoon the sliced apples around the meat and pour the sauce over all.
Makes 8 servings.

Brining chicken in buttermilk tenderizes the chicken, enhances the flavor and reacts with the seasoned flour-cornmeal coating for an exceptionally crispy breading.

Recipe Ingredients:
2 1/2 pounds chicken parts, rinsed and patted dry
1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cooking Directions:
1 – Place chicken in large, glass bowl or dish; pour buttermilk over it. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2 – In medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, salt, celery salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne. Dredge chicken pieces in flour, two at a time, turning to coat all sides thoroughly. Set chicken on a rack and let sit for 30 minutes.
3 – In medium saucepan over medium heat, warm butter. Stir in onion, red pepper and green pepper. Stew peppers until soft, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour and cayenne.

Turn chicken and cook for additional 10 minutes, until internal temperature registers 180°F (85°C) on thermometer. Remove chicken and drain on paper towels.
