Ingredients

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon summer savory (or Italian seasoning)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil (for cooking)
  • 1 head cauliflower (cut into florets)
  • 2 parsnips (medium, peeled)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 ounces cream cheese

Directions

  1. 1Make cauliflower-parsnip puree: Place cauliflower and parsnips in a medium sauce pan. Cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer until vegetables are tender. Drain well. Transfer to a blender. Add salt, pepper, butter and cream cheese. Blend until smooth. Season with more salt and pepper if needed. Set aside.
  2. 2 Make the pork tenderloin: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place rack in the middle. Trim tenderloin of silver skin and fat. Pierce with a fork or blade tenderizer a few times.
  3. 3 In a bowl combine salt, pepper, garlic powder, fresh thyme, savory seasoning and ground coriander. Rub them into the meat until evenly coated.
  4. 4 Heat 1 to 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in oven safe skillet (or cast iron skillet). Add tenderloin and cook until it is evenly browned on all sides (5-6 minutes).
  5. 5 Place in the oven and bake for 15 more minutes, flipping the meat once halfway through.
  6. 6 Bake until the pork's internal temperature reads between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) and 160 degrees F. (medium). Transfer to a cutting board and let it rest 5-10 minutes. Slice and serve alongside the cauliflower-parsnip puree.
