So, my first recipe, the Pruscetto wrapped pork loin, with three people eating, there were still left overs for another meal. After that meal, I still had left over pork loin. One of the members' cookbook, I found a recipe for Pork Chops with a bread crumb and Apricot jam or jelly. I was trying to find something to do with this pork. I took Ali Bresnahan's idea with a small spin to use this pork. It turned out great and the family loved it too. Thanks Ali!
1Take the left over Pork loin and slice into 1/4"-1/2" thick. Arrange towards the center of a rimmed and oiled baking dish.
2Crumble two pieces of bread into a blender and pulse it just as many times to get small bread crumbs. Add 1 Tablespoon Olive oil to the bread crumbs by drizzling and pulsing long enough to moisten the bread crumbs. Set aside crumb mixture in a bowl and rinse out the blender.
3Pour into the sink, about 3/4 th's of the apricot juice from the can and pour remaining contents into the blender. Pulse until it appears chopped.
4Salt and pepper each side, of each slice of pork. Spoon the apricot mixture onto the pork slices letting it run over the sides. Pat the bread crumb mixture onto the apricot dressing. Use leftover apricot mixture and dab around the outside of the pork slice grouping in pan. This is to help seal in moisture. Pork heated twice is starting to dry out. By putting the apricot dressing on top of, around the sides and again around the outside of all of them, re-moistens the meat nicely.
5Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes, or long enough to get it heated thoroughly for the last time.
Yumm yumm delicious. Three very good meals from one Pork Loin!
