25 – 40 Minutes
Juicy pork paired with peak-season peach and mint add up to a delightful and summery paleo dinner.
In your bag
- 1 organic sweet potato
- 1 or 2 organic shallots
- ½ teaspoon harissa powder (optional)
- 2 pork blade steaks (about 6 ounces each)
- 1 organic peach or other stone fruit
- 2 or 3 organic radishes (about 2 ounces total)
- 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh mint
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 2 ounces organic baby arugula or other leafy greens
Size matters! When roasting the sweet potato and shallots, use a sheet pan large enough to spread the vegetables out in a single layer to help ensure they cook evenly (we recommend one about 18 by 13 inches). Use a stainless-steel pan if you have one; a darker metal pan will speed the browning, so give the potatoes an extra stir or two while they roast.
An Italian invention, balsamic is a dark, sweet-tart vinegar made from pressed grape must—the same stuff that’s used to produce wine. As with wine, the aging process affects the vinegar’s acidity, pungency, and viscosity. Young balsamic vinegar, like ours, is more tart and fluid. Further character and complexity are gained through an aging process of resting the vinegar in successively smaller wooden barrels, sometimes for as long as 25 years. The longer it rests, the more moisture evaporates, concentrating the liquid and its flavors.
