Wash produce before use


Make the apple-ginger mostarda

Heat the oven to 425°F. 

  • Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp]. 
  • Peel the apple, if desired; core and cut into ½-inch pieces.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the ginger and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the apple and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the mostarda base. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a medium bowl. Wipe out the pan. 


Prep and roast the vegetables

  • Scrub or peel the turnips and trim the ends; cut the turnips into 1-inch pieces. 
  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut the carrots on the diagonal into 1-inch lengths.
  • Peel and cut the onion into 8 equal wedges; cut the wedges in half crosswise, if desired.

On a sheet pan [on 2 sheet pans], toss the turnips, carrots, and onion with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast until the vegetables start to soften, 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, brown the pork.


Prep and brown the pork

  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper and the curry powder. 

In the same pan used for the apple-ginger mostarda, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.


Finish roasting the vegetables and pork

Remove the sheet pan [both sheet pans] from the oven and stir the vegetables, then place the pork on top of the vegetables. Continue roasting until the vegetables are lightly browned and tender and the pork is still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. 


Transfer the pork and vegetables to individual plates. Top the pork with the apple-ginger mostarda and serve.
