A perfect and hearty winter main dish is this Roasted Pork Loin with Pear Chutney. The chutney goes great on almost any protein so feel free to double it!
For the chutney, combine all ingredients in a medium pot over medium-low heat. Bring to a slight simmer and simmer for 6-7 minutes until pears soften, but don’t turn completely to mush. Remove from heat. Serve at room temperature or slightly warmed.
For pork loin, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Season pork loin on all sides with salt and pepper. In an oven-safe cast iron skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sear pork loin on all sides for 2-3 minutes until browned.
Transfer pork to the oven and roast until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. in the thickest part, depending on the thickness of your pork loin this will take anywhere from 10-20 minutes. Use a meat thermometer!
When pork comes out of the oven, let it rest for a few minutes. Then slice and serve piled high with pear chutney and fresh cilantro.
