Pork Loin With Blueberry Sauce Recipe

There’s nothing quite like a juicy, baked pork loin. Sometimes, you just need this simple, home-style staple to give you that “comfort food” feeling; other times, you might want to jazz things up a bit. This recipe is a great combination of both.

Pork Loin With Blueberry Sauce

This pork loin with blueberry sauce recipe provides a unique twist on old-fashioned pork. Instead of a traditional, savory dish, you’ll experience the fruity tang of spices, balsamic vinegar, and blueberries that can sate any sweet tooth while still providing a nutritious Paleo meal.

In addition to the healthy protein in the pork loin, the inclusion of blueberries exposes the diner to the benefits of this fruit. The antioxidant-rich blueberry isn’t a miracle food, but it has been shown to reduce blood pressure and improve LDL levels when included in the diet regularly.

While these are great on their own and are usually a breakfast staple, they provide a complement to pork as well.

This dish is fantastic as the main dinner course and is a great, kid-friendly option for the child who may not like their meat “plain” or “spiced” up. There’s also very little preparation – as long as you have all ingredients on hand, you will be ready to get cooking!

Make sure to remember to pre-heat your oven before you start making your sauce – the meal prep will go much more quickly. Consider serving this dish with Roasted Mushrooms with Thyme for an earthy side and accompanying with a simple salad.
