Add this bright and light warm orzo salad, dotted with tomatoes, cucumber, olives and feta, and makes quickie side dish for this Greek-style tenderloin.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 1 minutes
        •    Cook time: 15 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4

        •    2 tsps dried oregano
        •    1 medium pork tenderloin
        •    zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
        •    2 large cloves garlic, minced
        •    salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

    Orzo Salad:

        •    lemon juice
        •    2 tbsps olive oil
        •    1 tsp dried oregano
        •    2 cups orzo, cooked

    Grilled Banana Pepper Compote-Glazed Pork Tenderloin

    This is a great, quick and easy pork tenderloin recipe topped with a grilled banana pepper. It’s super simple to make with just a few ingredients which is perfect for weeknight cooking.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 10 minutes
        •    Cook time: 85 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4


        •    12 banana peppers
        •    1 jalapeno
        •    Vegetable oil, for drizzling
        •    Kosher salt
        •    1 cup apple cider vinegar
        •    ½ cup whole-grain mustard
        •    1 ½ cups lightly packed brown sugar
        •    ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
        •    1 (1 1/2- to 2-lb) pork tenderloin, trimmed
        •    Freshly ground black pepper


    1. Prepare a grill for medium-high indirect heat.

    2. Drizzle the banana peppers and the jalapeno with vegetable oil and season with salt. Place on the grill over direct heat; grill on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Set aside to cool before removing the stems and seeds.

    3. Combine the cider vinegar, mustard, brown sugar and 3 ounces water in a medium pot over medium heat and bring to a simmer.

    4. Meanwhile, add the grilled banana peppers and the jalapeno to a food processor; pulse until smooth. Add the pureed peppers to the simmering vinegar mixture, stirring until combined. Slowly whisk in the flour, taking care not to create clumps. Lower the heat and simmer until the sauce reduces by one-quarter to an apple-butter consistency, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat. Set aside 3/4 cup for glazing the pork; the remainder to be used for serving.

    5. Drizzle the pork tenderloin with vegetable oil and sprinkle heavily with salt and pepper on all sides. Grill over direct heat for 1 to 2 minutes per side. Brush with 2 tablespoons of the banana pepper compote and move to indirect heat. Cook until an internal temperature of 140ºF is reached, rotating the pork 45 degrees every 5 minutes, and brushing it with 2 tablespoons of the compote after each rotation, 35 to 45 minutes total.

    6. Remove the pork to a cutting board. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with remaining compote.

        •    1 tsp ground black pepper

        •    1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (skip if you don't want it spicy)
        •    1 ½ tsp parsley, chopped
        •    1 clove garlic, minced
        •    zest of 1/2 lemon
        •    1 Tbsp olive oil

    Italian Salsa Verde

        •    1 clove garlic
        •    1/2 tsp salt
        •    1/2 tsp ground black pepper
        •    1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
        •    zest of 1/2 lemon
        •    juice of 1/2 lemon
        •    ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
        •    ¾ cup Italian parsley, chopped and packed
        •    1 Tbsp capers
        •    ¼ tsp anchovy paste


        •    Herb-Rubbed Pork Loin
        •    Italian Salsa Verde
        •    2 slices bread
        •    mayonnaise
        •    bacon
        •    lettuce
        •    tomato
        •    salt and pepper


    Herb-Rubbed Pork Loin (2-3 servings)

    1. Combine and grind all dry spices.
    2. Add in fresh herbs, garlic, lemon zest and olive oil. Mix by hand or with food processor.
    3. Mix by hand or with food processor. Rub mixture into surface of pork loin. Tightly wrap pork loin in plastic wrap. Let sit in refrigerator for at least 1 hour (the longer the better!). Remove from fridge when ready to cook.
    4. Heat oven to 375°F (190ºC). While oven is preheating, in a pan on med-high heat (hot enough to sear meat), add oil and once heated, sear each side of the pork loin until browned (about 2 minutes per side).
    5. Once oven is preheated, place pork loin on baking dish, cooking until internal temperature reaches 145ºF (63ºC) (this can take anywhere from 20-40 minutes depending on the size of your pork loin). I would check temperature at 20 minutes to check progress (mine took about 20 minutes).
    6. Allow pork to rest for 10 minutes before cutting. Cut into slices, drizzle with salsa verde if desired (see recipe link below).

    Italian Salsa Verde

    1. Combine all ingredients (except olive oil) in a food processor. Process until mixed and finely chopped.
    2. Add olive oil, process until mixed. Taste, add more salt,pepper or lemon juice if desired.

    Sandwich: Spread mayo on each slice of bread. Slice and spread pork loin on sandwich. Drizzle with about a tablespoon of salsa verde. Layer your bacon, lettuce, tomato, add salt and pepper, top your sandwich and enjoy!
