Directions

  1. (Optional but preferred for even distribution of salt and additional juiciness) Brine the pork in saline solution for 0.5 - 1 hour (3 tablespoons of salt dissolved in 6 cups of water). You can add additional herbs or seasoning at this time - almost like a marinade (I made a lemon-rosemary salt previously, so I just use that).
  2. Drain the brining solution, and place the pork in a bag with the butter, cooking wine, thyme, rosemary, white pepper, and salt (if you did not brine it already). Fresh herbs are preferred, but dried herbs work as well. Keep in water bath for 1-1:45.
  3. Heat a pan to medium high with some canola oil or butter. Remove pork from the bag/water bath. Sear the pork on both sides. (See pic below, pre-seared...looks pretty pasty, but super tender). While waiting for the edges to crisp, add additional butter and herbs* and baste the pork. Again, I prefer fresh herbs because they are more fragrant, and less likely to burn since they're moist! Not to mention, many are pretty easy to grow :).
  4. Optional - Since my housing does not allow grills, I like to use a torch to give it a nice roasted flavor - I mostly just torch the edges. And I like to thinly slice shallots and kind of in between caramelize/fry them, to top dishes. I added some balsamic reduction in the final image above, and served it with pearl couscous.
  5. VoilĂ !
