Cumin Roast Pork with Dried Fruit
From Thursday Night is Hearty Meat, by the editors of Women's Day


1 package (6 oz) mixed dried fruit, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
2-1/2 lb boneless pork loin
1-1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper


1. Heat oven to 375F (190C). Soak fruit in 1 cup boiling water 15 minutes. You'll need a small roasting pan and kitchen string.

2. Make a long cut down center of pork, not all the way through. Open like a book. Mix cumin, salt and pepper; sprinkle 1/2 tsp of mixture over cut surface.

3. Drain fruit; save liquid. Arrange fruit over one side of pork. Fold over other side to enclose filling. Tie in several places with kitchen string. Rub meat with rest of cumin mixture. Place in pan.

4. Roast 50 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted in center registers 160F (71C). Remove to cutting board; let rest 10 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, add fruit liquid to pan and stir over high heat to dissolve browned bits on bottom. Simmer 4 minutes to reduce slightly. Serve with pork.
