TIPS FOR BAKED PORK LOIN WITH APPLE AND ROSEMARY

1. If the loin starts to brown too much cover with aluminum foil.

2. We usually bake the loin at 180ºC (350ºF) but, if you lower the temperature to 150ºC (300ºF), despite taking longer to bake, it has the advantage of enhancing much more the flavors and the meat gets more tender.

3. If you have leftovers, store the meat in the fridge in a properly covered container (to prevent the growth of microorganisms). To avoid drying out the meat, do not reheat the food in the oven, reheat it in the microwave.

    Hello,

    I see that you have nutmeg and rosemary measurements as “to taste”. Can you give me an idea of the appropriate amount? I like nutmeg and rosemary.
