Mother's Day Rest: Three Ingredient Meals

Hey Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful mother's day! My sister and her husband took me and Lagan to San Antonio for the weekend! So I am super worn out from shopping all day and lots of food and margaritas! :)

So today's recipe is super quick and easy!

Cumin Roast Pork with Dried Fruit
Grocery List:
1 pkg (6 oz) mixed dried fruit, coarsely chopped (1 cup)
2 1⁄2-lb boneless pork loin
1 1⁄2 tsp ground cumin

How to make it:
1. Heat oven to 375ºF. Soak fruit in 1 cup boiling water 15 minutes. Have ready 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, 1⁄2 tsp salt and 1⁄4 tsp pepper; sprinkle 1⁄2 tsp 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 160ºF. 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.
