    Herb-Rubbed Pork & Salsa Verde Sandwich

    This is one classy sandwich that's easily adaptable. No pork? Feel free to use chicken, steak or lamb. For the salsa verde, you can cutting the recipe in half if you're only serving one or two - it goes a long way due to its intense flavour.

    Method

    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!

    Jerk Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple Salsa

    Good News Pork tenderloin is leaner than skin-on chicken and delicious in the spicy, smoky recipe here. Capsaicin, the chemical that makes chiles taste hot, can help boost metabolism; for extra fire, add the chile seeds to the marinade.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 30 minutes
        •    Cook time: 30 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4

    Ingredients

        •    1/4 cup canola oil
        •    2 scallions, thickly sliced
        •    2 garlic cloves, smashed
        •    2 Scotch bonnet or habanero chiles, stemmed and seeded
        •    1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
        •    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
        •    1 tablespoon light brown sugar
        •    2 teaspoons ground allspice
        •    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
        •    1 teaspoon thyme leaves
        •    1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
        •    One 1-inch piece of fresh ginger
        •    2 pork tenderloins (14 ounces each)
        •    Salt
        •    Pineapple-Jicama Salsa

    Method

    1. In a blender, combine 3 tablespoons of the oil with the scallions, garlic, chiles, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, allspice, black pepper, thyme, nutmeg and ginger. Puree until smooth. Transfer the marinade to a resealable plastic bag. Add the pork tenderloins, turning to coat. Seal the bag, pressing out the air, and refrigerate for 4 to 8 hours.
    2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Remove the pork from the marinade. Brush with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and season generously with salt. Grill the pork over moderately low heat, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer reaches 135 when inserted in the center of the meat, about 20 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice the pork and serve with the salsa.
