By ascendbodyOctober 7, 2016

Cumin is an herb that many associate with Mexican and Spanish foods, but it is also widely used in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking. Cumin’s flavor makes it a favorite for many, but it’s health supporting properties are impressive too! It’s also considered a good source of Iron, Manganese, and other vitamins and minerals and some research shows that it may stimulate the production of pancreatic enzymes and help digestion.

 Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 6-8oz pork tenderloins
  • 1-2 tablespoon bacon fat (or other cooking fat)
  • 1/2 onions, chopped into large slices
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cloves fresh garlic, smashed

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 ° F.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the cumin, coriander, granulated garlic, sea salt, and black pepper.
  3. Using paper towels, pat the pork tenderloins dry, and apply the spice blend to the meat generously to create a crust.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and melt the bacon fat. Place the pork tenderloins in the skillet, and sear on all sides for approximately 2 minutes per side.
  5. Place the onions, carrots, garlic in a large roasting dish, topped by the seared pork tenderloins. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork tenderloins reaches 145 ° F.
  6. If you need to continue to roast the vegetables until they are soft, simply remove the pork and set it aside on a cutting board to rest while the vegetables finish roasting for another 10-15 minutes.
  7. Slice the tenderloin on the bias (diagonally) and serve over the vegetables.
  8. Enjoy!
