onion smothered pork loin topped with double cream gouda

The weather has finally cooled down some which makes it a little easier to cook in my little kitchen. A simple pork loin is jazzed up with sweet, caramel onions and creamy Gouda. I served up some roasted acorn squash topped with maple syrup, salt/pepper, and butter and steamed green beans. A really nice and easy fall meal.


1 pork loin
salt and pepper
few fresh thyme sprigs

2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
tsp of sugar
salt and pepper
4 lg garlic cloves, minced
2 cups organic beef broth

1 cup shredded Gouda

Preheat oven to 425F. Season pork with salt and pepper and paprika. Brown in a little oil in saute pan on each side. Remove and add to baking dish. set aside.

Add onions to pan and sprinkle sugar over. cook on low for 10-15 min until caramelized and soft. add garlic and cook another 5 min. add in thyme and season with salt and pepper and more paprika. Cover pork with onion mixture in pan. Add in beef broth.

Cook about 30 min.

remove from oven. set pork aside and rest. drain broth from onions, reserving liquid in bowl. in skillet heat a few TB of unsalted butter and add 1 TB of flour. cook a few minutes until bubbly and no lumps of flour remain, slowly pour in broth. bring to boil then turn off. dump in onions and test for seasoning.
