Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Orange Rosemary Glaze


Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Orange Rosemary Glaze
Serves 4
For the Glaze
1 cup orange or tangerine juice
1 teaspoon grated orange or tangerine zest
1 tablespoon finely chopped rosemary
2 tablespoons brown sugar
In a small saucepan, combine the ingredients, and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes, until the glaze begins to thicken. Remove from the heat. The glaze will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
For the Pork Tenderloin
1/2 cup coarse salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 pork tenderloins (about 2 pounds total)
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1. In a medium bowl, mix salt and sugar with 1 quart cool water until dissolved. Trim the tenderloins of excess fat and silverskin and put into a zip-lock bag. Pour the brine into the bag, seal and let stand about 45 minutes. Remove the pork from the brine, rinse thoroughly, and pat dry.
2. Rub the brined tenderloins all over with some of the glaze and then season with the pepper.
3. Heat a gas grill, turning all the burners to high until the grill is fully heated, 10 to 15 minutes.
4. Put the pork on the hot grill grate. Close the lid and grill for 7 minutes. Turn the pork over, close the lid, and grill for another 6 minutes.
5. Turn off the heat (keep the lid closed) and continue to cook the pork for another 5 minutes.
6. At this point, an instant-read thermometer inserted into the middle of the thickest end of the tenderloin should read 145° to 150°F. (If not, close the lid and let the pork continue to roast in the residual grill heat.) Remove the pork from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before carving. Cut across the grain into 1/2-inch slices and serve immediately, with the remaining glaze.

Pork Osso Buco with Blood Orange Gremolata


Pork Osso Buco with Blood Orange Gremolata
Serves 6
I actually prefer using pork instead of veal in Osso Buco for its sweet taste, and melt in your mouth tenderness. Using pork shoulder makes this an affordable dish.
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper
2 1/2 pounds pork shoulder, fat trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
2 teaspoons dried sage leaves
One 15.5 ounce can chopped tomatoes in their juice
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup blood orange juice
2 tablespoons finely chopped Italian parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon freshly grated blood orange zest
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1. In a Dutch oven, melt the butter in the oil.
2. Season the pork with salt and pepper, and brown the pork a few pieces at a time, until the pork is browned on all sides, removing the pork as it browns. When all the pork has browned, return it back to the pan and add the onion, carrots, celery and sage, sautéing for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables begin to soften.
3. Add the tomatoes, and simmer for 5 minutes, to reduce the liquid. Add the wine, and simmer another 5 minutes, then add the broths and juice.
4. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until the pork is tender.
5. Stir in the parsley, garlic and zests, taste for seasoning and adjust if needed.
6. Serve with risotto, or polenta.
