Pork Tenderloin with Warm Roast Vegetable Salad

Author: Canadian Living

Serve with: Barley pilaf. Pork tenderloin is an extremely lean cut of meat with no waste. Coating the pork in ground porcini mushrooms gives it a delicious mushroom-flavoured crust.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 sweet red peppers
  • 1 sweet green pepper
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 1 eggplant
  • 4 plum tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons pepper
  • 1/4 cup dried porcini mushroom
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 2 (1-1/2 lb/750 g total) pork tenderloins
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Method

Remove seeds and ribs from red and green peppers; cut into 2-inch (5 cm) chunks and place in large bowl. Cut zucchini and eggplant into 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick slices; add to bowl. Cut each tomato into 4 wedges; add to bowl.

Toss vegetables with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil, garlic, Italian herb seasoning and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) each of the salt and pepper. Spread on large foil- or parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet. Roast in 425°F (220°C) oven for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, using mini-chopper, clean coffee grinder or mortar and pestle, finely grind mushrooms. Add sage and remaining salt and pepper. Brush remaining oil over tenderloins; coat with mushroom mixture.

In large nonstick skillet, brown tenderloins over medium-high heat. Push vegetables to 1 side of baking sheet; add pork to space. Roast until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside and vegetables are golden, about 20 minutes. Transfer pork to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing thinly.

Meanwhile, transfer vegetables to serving bowl; sprinkle with balsamic vinegar and toss gently. Serve with pork.
