Pork Tenderloin Recipe

My friend Chef Michael Scipione was a guest on my Voice America radio show this week. This is his special offering to all my listeners and visitors to my website. Enjoy! Janet

1 lb pork tenderloin silver skin and fat removed
2 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried thyme
1 lemon zested juice from ½ lemon
½ tsp black pepper
1 tbsp canola oil
For the sweet potato’s
5 sweet potatoes skinned and chopped into ½ rounds
2 large carrot’s peeled and cut into small rounds
1 small red onion – finely diced
1 large orange – zested
juice from 1 orange
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 bag of baby spinach


Remove the silver skin and excess fat from the pork tenderloin set aside
Add the next 6 ingredients plus 1 tsp of canola oil in a bowl and whisk until all the ingredients are incorporated
Brush this mixture onto the tenderloin. Add the remaining oil to a hot pan over a high flame. Sear the loin for 7 min on the first side, 6 minutes on the second side, 5 minutes on the 3rd side, 4 min on the 4th side,
then sear the ends for 30 seconds. Remove from pan and let rest for 10-15 minutes then cut on a very thin bias (diagonal). For the sweet potato’s. Peel and cut potatoes in half and then into ½ wide half rounds and place into a large pot. Repeat the steps for the carrots and fine dice the shallots. Add the carrots, shallots, and ½ tbsp salt to the pot. Then fill the pot with cold water ½ inch above the ingredients. Bring to a boil and then medium flame for 20 min or until fork tender. Then drain and place back in an empty hot pot to help evaporate the water over a low flame. Add the orange zest, juice from half the orange, and the honey, the remaining salt and pepper and mash with a potato masher. Wash, drain and dry the spinach with a paper towel. Place the raw spinach on the bottom of the plate, top with the mashed potatoes, and then the pork.
