Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Sprinkle pork with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In a large nonstick skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Sear pork for about 5 minutes, browning on all sides. Place pork on a rack in a roasting pan and roast for 25 to 35 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F when tested with a thermometer. Remove from oven and cover with foil. Allow to stand for at least 3 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in the same skillet melt butter over medium heat into the drippings remaining in the skillet. Add sliced cabbage and cook until just starting to wilt. Add apple and cook 3 minutes more or until apple is tender and cabbage is cooked. Transfer to a medium bowl, stir in vinegar and season with the 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper; keep warm.

  • In a small bowl stir together chicken broth, lemon juice, and thyme. Pour broth mixture into the drippings in the hot skillet. Add cream cheese and whisk until smooth and heated through.

  • Slice pork and serve over warm cabbage apple slaw. Top with lemon thyme cream. Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs if desired.
