How to Use Balsamic Vinegar

Balsamic vinegar is delicious drizzled over salads, of course. But try it in cooked dishes, too. Balsamic vinegar holds onto its spicy kick, balancing the rich flavor of meat, poultry, and fish, and adding welcome acidity to vegetables. Some flavored balsamic vinegars are also great to add to fruit, cheesecake, poundcake, ice cream, yogurt, drinks, and more.

 

 

 

FENNEL CRUSTED PORK LOIN

1 lbs pork loin

1 cup Verbena Fennel Balsamic

1 -2 tbsp Verbena Italian Carolea Olive Oil

2 tbsp Maple Syrup

3 cloves garlic, cut in halves

1 tbsp fennel seed, crushed

1 tsp dried herb blend

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pat the pork loin dry with a paper towel, then cut the openings for the garlic. Cut as many slits into the muscle as you can. The slits should be approximately 1 inch apart, and about halfway into the loin.

Once you've made the pockets, stuff a half clove of garlic into each hole.  Coat the pork in 1 tbsp of olive oil.

Next, in a small bowl, mix together crushed fennel seed, 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Adhere the herb mixture to the pork with a pressing motion.

Now, heat a cast iron skillet on medium-high heat. When it's hot, coat the pan in 1 tbsp of olive oil. Add pork and sear all sides of the meat until golden, turn carefully. When all the sides have browned, remove the pork from the pan.

Place into the oven for about 15 - 20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork loin reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Set aside to rest for 5- 10 minutes before serving.

While the pork is baking, make the balsamic glaze. Add 1 cup of balsamic vinegar and 2 tbsp of pure maple syrup to the pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the sauce reduces by half, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. and drizzle the glaze over the pork loin.
