Here’s a fancy dinner recipe that really isn’t fancy at all: Roasted Pork with Blackberry Sauce
Today I’m highlighting a dinner recipe that is quick and easy, and it’s definitely pretty enough for holiday entertaining.
The recipe begins with a Smithfield Original Recipe Marinated Pork Loin Filet. I love this product because it comes already marinated and perfectly seasoned for easy, throw-it-in-the-oven roasting. While the pork is in the oven, a simple blackberry sauce is prepared to serve along with it.
When blackberries are simmered, they break down into a beautiful, thick sauce.. perfect for topping a beautiful piece of roasted pork! And what I love most about this recipe is that the blackberry sauce looks so beautiful for a special holiday dinner.
Isn’t it just gorgeous?
Add some fresh parsley alongside the roasted pork with blackberry sauce, and the presentation is festive enough for a holiday table.
Slices of this pork turn out to be tender and juicy. Top the slices with blackberry sauce, and that’s a beautiful main dish for you. The sauce is sweet, and it’s scented lightly with cinnamon. It’s the perfect pairing for roasted pork.
