Roast Pork Loin with Sage Sauce

Oh my goodness this meal is delicious and the sauce is to die for. I could just drink the yummy sauce by itself!

I recently made gnocchi with a sage butter sauce and found this recipe in the package of sage. This meal is great for autumn and goes fantastically with mashed potatoes.


  • 3/4 oz. of sage (one package of The Herbal Garden brand), chopped and divided into 2 equal portions
  • 2 large granny smith apples, peeled and chopped in 1/4 inch cubes
  • 4 large shallots, peeled and quartered
  • 4 bay leaves
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 boneless pork loin, about 3 pounds, oiled and generously seasoned with salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. In roasting pan, place apples, shallots, 4 bay leaves and half of the chopped sage. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Toss to coat.  Place oiled and seasoned pork loin over mixture.
  3. Roast approximately 1 hour or until the meat’s internal temperature reaches 160. Remove from pan and let rest 20 minutes before slicing.
  4. Skim off excess oil from pan. Place apples mixture in saute pan and cook until brown. Add stock and reduce stock by half.
  5. Add cream and cook until sauce starts to thicken. Add remaining sage. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Serve with sliced pork.
