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.

Slow Cooker Lemon Pork Tenderloin

I know that I have said this several times before but cooking is so relaxing and a therapeutic hobby. I love it how I can just go into the kitchen start preparing a recipe and practically forget everything for a short time. My most favorite thing about it is rubbing spice mixture in my meats and marinating them in the fridge for several hours. I don’t know why it is but for some odd, reason it’s like some sort of therapy.

This zesty pork tenderloin is incredibly juicy and savory. It completely knocked my socks off when I took my first bite. Marinating the pork tenderloin the evening before placing it into the slow cooker was the perfect charm to making it even more flavorful and tender. If you have leftovers it tastes even better the next day.

Lemon Pork Tenderloin

Ingredients

1 2 lb pork tenderloin

2 lemons juiced

1/4 C Bragg or soy sauce

6 Garlic cloves, minced

2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Cornstarch Slurry: 1 teaspoon cornstarch whisked into two teaspoons of cold water (Optional)

Directions

Use a 6-quart crockpot insert. Place the pork tenderloin into the bottom of an airtight container, and add the lemon juice, Bragg, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and oil. Close tightly, and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, dump the container contents into the crockpot, and cook on low for seven to nine hours. If you’d like to thicken the crock drippings before serving, you can whisk in the cornstarch slurry. slice the meat thinly and serve with rice.
