Make a low-fat pork entree that's perfect for entertaining by roasting a pork loin in a mixture of brown sugar, butter, and apples. Note that the sugar coating can burn if the roast isn't turned often enough.

Apples, rich in fiber, are a great way to satisfy that sweet tooth. Mixed with pork, this dish is full of protein and fiber. Add a side of mashed sweet potatoes or squash - as shown - for healthy carboyhdrates and vitamin A.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 3

Rub garlic over surface of trimmed pork loin. Heat a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add pork and onion; cook 10 minutes or until browned on all sides, turning occasionally.

Step 4

Place the pork in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over roast. Arrange the onion around pork, and drizzle with vinegar. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes.

Step 5

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add apples, and sauté 5 minutes or until golden.

Step 6

Remove the pork from oven, and arrange apples around pork; reduce heat to 350°, and cook an additional 20 minutes or until pork is done.

Step 7

Pour pan drippings into a medium saucepan, and cook over medium-high heat until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 14 minutes). Drizzle over pork, apples, and onion.
