Recipe: Pork Tenderloin with Olive Tapenade

Pork Tenderloin with Olive Tapenade

Tapenade is a popular entrée from the South of France, where it is generally eaten as an appetizer and spread on bread. We wanted to switch up this tantalizing entrée by pairing it with hearty pork tenderloin marinated in Greek seasoning and complemented with saffron orzo pasta and sautéed broccoli florets.Enjoy!


What you’ll need:

1 cup of Niçoise olives (pitted)

1 cup of small green olives (Picholine), (also pitted)

1/4 cup of sundried tomatoes 

1 tablespoon of capers

1 garlic clove

1/2 tablespoon of chopped fresh basil leaves

1/2 tablespoon of chopped fresh thyme leaves

1/2 tablespoon of chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

1/4 tablespoon of chopped fresh oregano leaves

1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil

Directions: In a food processor, combine all the ingredients except the olive oil. Using the pulse button, process until coarsely chopped and well blended. Continue to process, and slowly add the olive oil. Refrigerate in a covered container. Use as needed. This will make 1 cup.

To prepare ahead:
Tapenade will keep up to 1 week, refrigerated, in a covered container.

 

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

What you’ll need:

20 ounces of pork tenderloin (about 2 tenderloin per pack)

1 tablespoon of Greek seasoning (Spice it Up Atlanta)

Directions: Clean pork tenderloin by removing the silver skin and fat from the top of the tenderloin. When all of the silver skin is removed, place the tenderloin in a bowl and toss with Greek seasoning. Be sure to rub all of the seasoning onto the pork and set aside. Next, heat a skillet over medium heat, add oil and sear the pork tenderloin on both sides for 3 min each. Then remove and place on a baking sheet pan.
