#6: Recipe of the Week

This week’s recipe is an Apricot-Onion Porkloin.  This turned out really delicious.  The recipe called for a one pound pork loin, but I bought a two pound, and split it in half.  This allowed me to make my own serving of the apricot-onion sauce, and my husband grossed his up with General Tso’s sauce (since he doesn’t enjoy apricots OR onions).  The pork turned out really tender.  I used a Hatfield pork loin, without any flavoring.  Click through for recipe!
