Tangy Figgy Balsamic pork with veggies

You’ve likely come across figs into baked goods, dried and nestled onto the cheese platters, or preserved and slathered on toast for breakfast. But today, you’ll be mixing things up by pairing fig jam with tangy balsamic vinegar. The result? A sweet and savory sauce that’ll transform the pork tenderloin that it’s drizzled on top of.

Figgy Balsamic pork with roasted green beans & rosemary potatoes

Ingredients

2 Shallots

1/4 oz. Rosemary

24 oz. Yukon gold potatoes

24 oz. pork tenderloin

12 oz. green beans

4 Tbsp. Fig jam

2 Tbsp. chicken stock concentrate

10 tsp. balsamic vinegar

4 tsp. Olive oil, divided

2 Tbsp. Butter

Salt and pepper

Directions

1. Move the oven racks to top middle positions and preheat it to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and finely chop shallot. Strip rosemary leaves from stems; chop leaves until you have two teaspoons (4 tsp for 4 servings). Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces.

2. Toss potatoes on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil, half the chopped rosemary, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast on the top rack, tossing halfway through, until tender and crisped, twenty – twenty-five minutes.

3. Meanwhile, pat pork dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add pork and sear, occasionally turning, until browned all over, four-eight minutes. Transfer to a second baking sheet.

4. Toss green beans with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper on sheet with pork. Roast on middle rack until pork is cooked through and green beans are tender, 10-12 minutes. Let pork rest a few minutes after removing from oven, then thinly slice crosswise.

5. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in pan used for pork over medium heat. Add shallot and remaining chopped rosemary. Cook, stirring, until softened, 1-2 minutes. Stir in stock concentrate, vinegar, jam, and ¼ cup water (½ cup for 4 servings). Simmer until thick and saucy, 2-3 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4) until melted. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Divide potatoes, green beans, and pork between plates. Drizzle pan sauce over pork and serve.

2 Zucchini, trimmed, quarter lengthwise; and cut crosswise into ½-inch-thick pieces.

2 Onions, peel, halved, and dice

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 lb. ground beef

1 Tbsp . Italian seasoning

1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes

12 oz. spaghetti

1 tsp. Chili flakes, optional

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. Trim and quarter zucchini lengthwise; cut crosswise into ½-inch-thick pieces. Halve, peel, and dice onion. Mince garlic.

2. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add beef and season with salt, pepper, and half the Italian Seasoning (you’ll use the rest later). Cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, four-six minutes. Turn off heat. (TIP: If there’s excess grease in your pan, carefully pour it out.) Transfer beef to a plate.

3. Once water is boiling, add spaghetti to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, nine-eleven minutes. Carefully reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water (¾ cup for 4 servings), then drain.

4. While spaghetti cooks, heat a drizzle of oil in pan used for beef over medium-high heat. Add zucchini and onion. Cook, stirring, until softened, five- seven minutes. Stir in garlic and remaining Italian Seasoning; cook until garlic is fragrant, thirty seconds.

5. Add beef, tomatoes, stock concentrate, and reserved pasta cooking water to pan with veggies. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer until thick and saucy, five- ten minutes. (TIP: If mixture begins to stick to the bottom of the pan, stir in a splash of water.) Taste and season with salt and pepper. Stir in 1 TBSP plain butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) until melted.

Chicken Cheddar Fajitas from HelloFresh

Chicken Cheddar Fajitas

Ingredients

2 Red onions, thinly sliced

2 bell peppers, thinly sliced

1 jalapeño, thinly sliced into rounds (remove ribs and seeds for less heat)

Zest and quarter 3 limes

2 Tbsp. Fajita seasoning

4 Tbsp. sour cream

1 lb chicken breast

2 Tbsp olive oil, divided

Flour or wheat tortillas

Shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

1. In a small bowl, combine jalapeno and juice from two lime wedges. Set aside to pickle. Heat a tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell peppers and half of the fajita seasoning (you’ll use the rest later.) Cook, stirring, until softened and lightly charred, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat; remove from pan and set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a second small bowl, combine sour cream, a squeeze or two of lime juice, and lime zest to taste. Stir in water one tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Thinly slice into strips; season with salt and pepper. Heat a large drizzle of oil in pan used for veggies over medium-high heat. Add chicken in a single layer and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, two-three minutes. Stir in veggies and remaining Southwest Spice. Continue cooking until chicken is cooked through, two-three minutes more.

4. Meanwhile, place tortillas on a baking sheet in a single layer; sprinkle evenly with cheddar. (For 4 servings, divide tortillas between 2 baking sheets.) Bake until cheese has melted, one to two minutes. TIP: Don’t let these sit in the oven too long. The tortillas should be soft, not crisp.

6. Divide the chicken mixture between tortillas. Drizzle with the sour cream and top with pickled jalapeño to taste. Serve with any remaining lime wedges on the side.
