  • 1 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 cup of apricot preserve

  3. Add a little bit of olive oil on top, and bake for 40 minutes.
  4. If you have a food thermometer, you can measure the internal temperature of the pork loins, which should be at 145°F (62.8°C) when fully cooked.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the apricot sauce by bringing the preserves to the heat in a pan, add salt, pepper, paprika, and crushed red pepper. Let this cook for 3 minutes.
