Seared pork loin with polenta, broccoli, beets and pan sauce and roasted apple.
For the pork I seasoned it with salt and pepper, seared it, and then roasted it with the apples.
The polenta is made with White Corn Masa, chicken stock, thyme, bay leaf, butter, and parmesan.
I brought the chicken stock to a boil (about three cups) and then whisked in about 1 cup of white masa. I also added 1 bay leaf and 1 tsp dried thyme. I cooked this until it was thick and the corn was cooked through. I put it in a bread pan lined with parchment, covered it with another piece of parchment, and then cooled it until it was firm and I could cut it.
I cut it with a round cutter and seared it in a pan on both side until it was heated through.
I layered this all together and topped it with a simple sauce made with the drippings and apple juice in the pan, a bit of chicken stock, and butter.
