- 1 (3 pound) pork loin
- Salt and ground black pepper
- 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
- 1/2 cup strawberry preserves
- 1/4 cup raspberry preserves
- 1/4 cup boysenberry preserves
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 parsnips, peeled and cubed
- Olive oil cooking spray
- Sauteed Snow Peas, recipe follows
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut 1/3 of the pork off the entire loin. Transfer both pieces of pork to the prepared baking dish. Season the pork all over with salt and black pepper.
In a small bowl, combine the strawberries, strawberry preserves, raspberry preserves, boysenberry preserves, and cumin. Mix well. Pour the mixture all over the larger portion of the pork.
Roast for 45 minutes, or until an instant-read thermometer reads at least 160 degrees F (the meat may still be pink in the center).
Let the pork rest for 10 minutes.
Slice crosswise into 1/2-inch thick slices using 1 pound of pork for this meal (with parsnips and snow peas), slice 1 pound crosswise into 8 (1/2-inch) thick slices for a second meal (chili-seared pork with pineapple salsa), and shred the remaining 1 pound pork for the third meal (radicchio cups with pork and seasoned rice).
Sauteed Snow Peas:
2 cups snow peas
1 tablespoon butter
Salt and ground black pepper
In a medium skillet, saute the snow peas in the butter over medium-low heat until tender-crisp. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
