pork loin with herb paste.

  • 1 pork tenderloin, organic
  • 3 tbs. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 1/2 c. walnuts, raw, organic
  • 1/2 c. parsley, fresh, organic
  • 1 1/2 tbs. thyme, fresh, organic
  • 1 1/2 tbs. rosemary, fresh, organic
  • 4 1/2 tsp. sage, dried, organic
  • 2 clove garlic, fresh, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper, ground, organic

Score fat on roast with a sharp knife 0.25 in apart. In a skillet, heat 2 tsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Add roast and brown on all sides, about 3 minutes per side, reducing heat if smoking occurs. Transfer to a wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Preheat oven to 350F. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine remaining 3 tblsp olive oil, walnuts, parsley, thyme, rosemary, sage, garlic, salt, and pepper. Process until smooth. Spread herb paste over top and down sides of roast. Bake for 60-75 minutes or until internal temp reaches 145F. Let meat rest 10 minutes to allow internal temp to rise to 150* before slicing.
