Fruited Pork Roast Recipe

INGREDIENTS 2 cups water 2 tbsp salt 1 tbsp sugar 1 tsp dried thyme 1 bay leaf ½ tsp black pepper 1 pound boneless pork loin roast (3 to 3-½) 1 tbsp olive oil ⅓ cup dry red wine Juice of ½ lemon 2 cloves minced garlic 2 cups green grapes 1 cup dried apricots 1 cup dried prunes

Prepare the flavorful brine mixture by combining water, salt, sugar, thyme, bay leaf, and pepper in a bowl.

After marinating overnight or up to two days, remove the pork from the brine and pat it dry to ensure a perfect sear in the Instant Pot.

Brown the pork on all sides in the Instant Pot using the sauté function, infusing it with rich color and flavor.

Deglaze the pot with a mixture of wine, lemon juice, and garlic, capturing all those delicious browned bits from the bottom.

Enhance the dish with the addition of grapes, apricots, and prunes, adding layers of sweetness and complexity.

Pressure cook the pork and fruit mixture to tender perfection, allowing the flavors to meld together beautifully.
