  5. 5. Apple & Leek Stuffed Pork Tenderloin • Makes 4 servings • Time 1 hour 10 minutes
  6. 6. Ingredients 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 teaspoon, divided 1 cup chopped leek, white and light green parts only, rinsed 1 sweet apple, such as Brae burn, Honey crisp or Macoun, peeled and chopped 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme, plus 1 sprig, divided 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided 1-1 1/4 pounds pork tenderloin, trimmed 2 cloves garlic, peeled 1/2 cup applejack or apple brandy 2 cups apple cider 2 teaspoons cornstarch 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  7. 7. Directions 1. Preheat oven to 450°F. 2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add leek and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add apple, chopped thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the apple is beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl to cool. Rinse out the pan. 3. To butterfly the tenderloin, lay it on a large cutting board. Holding the knife blade flat and parallel to the board, make a lengthwise cut through the center of the meat, stopping short of the opposite edge so that the tenderloin remains in one piece. Open as you would a book. Cover with plastic wrap. With a meat mallet, rolling pin or heavy pan, pound the pork to an even 1/4-inch thickness. 4. Spread the apple mixture in the center of the pork, leaving a 1-inch border all around. Starting at a long side, roll up the pork to enclose the filling. To keep the stuffing from falling out during roasting, fold in about 1 inch of the two short ends. Tie kitchen string firmly lengthwise around the roast to secure the two ends. Then tie it crosswise with string at 2-inch intervals. Lightly brush the roast with 1 teaspoon oil and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. 5. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and brown the roast on all sides, about 4 minutes total. Transfer the roast to a rimmed baking sheet (set the pan aside). Place in the oven and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 145°F, about 15 minutes. Let rest on a clean cutting board for 5 minutes. 6. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Crush garlic with the flat side of a knife. Return the pan to mediumhigh heat. Add applejack (or apple brandy), thyme sprig and the garlic; bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Whisk cider and cornstarch and add to the pan. Return to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and reduced by just over half (to about 3/4 cup), 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; discard the garlic and thyme. Whisk in mustard and any juice from the baking sheet. Slice the pork and serve with the sauce.

  12. 12. Roast Turkey with Potato Pan Gravy • Makes 8 servings (3 ounces meat, 1/4 cup gravy), plus leftovers • Active Time 45 minutes • Total Time 2 1/2 hours plus 12-18 hours time brining
  13. 13. Ingredients Brine & Turkey 4 quarts vegetable broth 1 cup kosher salt 2/3 cup agave nectar (see Tips) 2 medium onions, peeled and quartered 1 small handful fresh thyme sprigs (about 1/2 ounce) 2 large sprigs fresh sage 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns 1 gallon ice-cold water 1 14-pound natural or organic turkey (see Tips), neck, gizzards and excess fat removed 1 tablespoon grape seed oil or canola oil 1 teaspoon sea salt Gravy 2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes (about 12 ounces), peeled and cut into chunks 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth or turkey stock Freshly ground pepper to taste
  14. 14. Directions 1. To brine turkey: Combine vegetable broth, kosher salt, agave nectar, onions, thyme, sage and peppercorns in a large pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Transfer to a 16-quart pot, clean 5-gallon bucket or a brining bag. Add ice water. Submerge the turkey in the brine, breast-side down. Weight the turkey with a plate, if necessary, so it stays submerged. Refrigerate for 12 to 18 hours. 2. To roast turkey: Remove all the oven racks except one, set in the lowest position; preheat oven to 475°F. 3. Remove the turkey from the brine and rinse well with cold water. Thoroughly dry with a clean kitchen towel or paper towels. (Discard the brine.) Rub the turkey all over with oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Place on a roasting rack, breast-side up, in a roasting pan. Tuck the wing tips under the turkey and tie the legs together with kitchen string. 4. Roast the turkey for 30 minutes, rotating the pan back to front halfway through. Remove from the oven and cover the whole turkey with a double layer of foil. Add 2 cups hot water to the roasting pan. Continue roasting, rotating the pan again halfway through, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a thigh without touching bone registers 165°F, 1 to 1 1/2 hours more. Peek under the foil 15 to 30 minutes before you think the turkey will be done; if it’s not browning nicely, remove the foil for the remainder of the roasting time. 5. Carefully transfer the turkey to a large, clean cutting board; let it rest, loosely covered with foil, for at least 20 minutes before removing the string and carving. 6. To prepare gravy: While the turkey is roasting, place potatoes in a large saucepan and add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook until the potatoes are very tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain.
  15. 15. 7. While the turkey is resting, skim any visible fat from the pan drippings. Place the roasting pan over medium heat. Add broth (or stock) and bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits. Transfer to a blender, add the potatoes and blend on high speed for 2 minutes. If the gravy is too thick, add a little broth (or stock or water) to thin to the desired consistency. Return the gravy to the pan and simmer over low heat until hot, about 2 minutes. Season with pepper. 8. Carve the turkey and serve with the gravy. Nutrition Facts 178 calories, 5 g fat ( 1 g sat , 1 g mono ), 67 mg cholesterol, 6 g carbohydrates, 27 g protein, 586 mg sodium, 365 mg potassium Tips & Notes Make Ahead Tip: Equipment: Container large enough to hold the turkey or brining bag, kitchen string Tips: Agave syrup or nectar is the naturally sweet juice extracted from the agave plant. It has a lower glycemic index and is lower in calories than table sugar, but is even sweeter. Use it in moderation when substituting for table sugar. Look for it near other sweeteners in large supermarkets and natural foods stores. Turkey, natural or organic: For the best taste and texture, like using a “natural” or “organic” turkey—it does not have any added “sodium solution” found in most conventional turkeys and have better taste and texture. Turkeys labeled “heritage” are also typically “natural.”

Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add wine and scrape up any browned bits; bring to a boil over medium heat and continue to boil until the liquid is reduced by about half, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in broth, tomatoes, basil, thyme and the chicken thighs. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to a simmer and cook, uncovered and turning the thighs occasionally, until cooked through and tender, 35 to 40 minutes. 5. Remove the thighs with a slotted spoon; tent with foil to keep warm. Simmer the sauce further to thicken it, if desired, or thin with a little broth or water if it’s too thick. Season with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Serve the chicken with the sauce.
