Pork Loin with Pearl Onions and Apricots
This elegant and comforting dinner is all about the low and slow braise of a boneless pork loin. Borrowing flavors from it's flavorful base of white wine and herbs, the cut of meat emerges perfumed with fennel seed, orange zest, and dried apricots.
Soaking pearl and cipollini onions in warm water for just 10 minutes makes their thin, tight skin easier to remove. After soaking, simply cut off the root end and peel back the skin. If you can't find pearl or cipollini onions, you can substitute 1 large or 2 small yellow onions, each cut into 8 wedges.
