Ingredients

  • 4 pounds pork rib rack
  • 4 cups brussels sprouts (about 20 sprouts)
  • 1 sweet potatoes (large)
  • 1 red onion (small)
  • garlic salt
  • salt
  • pepper
  • fat
  • oil
  • 1/2 cup fig jam
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • feta cheese crumbles
  • feta cheese crumbles
  • goat cheese

Directions

  1. 1. Pat the pork dry and season it lightly with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet (I used a cast iron) with a small amount of fat or oil until very (very) hot and sear the pork on each side for 2 - 3 minutes, until browned.
  2. 2. Place pork on a baking sheet into a 450 degree oven, middle rack. Set timer for 20 minutes.
  3. 3. While pork is roasting, cut sweet potato into half/quarter inch cubes, and stem/halve the brussels sprouts.
  4. 4. Set aside 1/3 of the onion and slice the rest into rings.
  5. 5. Toss brussels sprouts, sweet potato, and onion with a little bit of oil, and sprinkle generously with garlic salt.
  6. 6. When 20 minute timer ends, add the vegetables to your baking sheet with the pork in a single layer. If the pork looks like it's browning too quickly, turn it over. Set an additional 20 minutes on the timer.
  7. 7. While the pork and vegetables are roasting, bring your skillet that you used for searing back up to medium/high. Deglaze the pan by adding red wine and stirring for a few minutes (to release everything from the bottom of the pan into your sauce. Add fig preserves and soy sauce, then simmer until reduced to about half, or less (depending on your preferred consistency).
  8. 8. When timer ends, check vegetables and pork for doneness (using a fork on the veggies and meat thermometer on the pork). Remove each as finished (they might not finish at exactly the same time).
  9. The National Pork Board recommends that for tender, juicy and delicious pork loins, roasts, chops and tenderloins to cook them like you would a steak – until a digital thermometer reads an internal temperature between 145°F (medium rare) and 160°F (medium), followed by a three-minute rest. For easier slicing and to let the pork juices redistribute throughout the meat, remove larger cuts, such as roasts, from the oven and let them stand and rest for a total of 10 minutes before serving.
  10. 9. Place vegetables on serving tray (and optionally sprinkle with cheese), then place pork over top.
  11. 10. Drizzle generously with fig glaze.Enjoy!
