Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the pork

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

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut into ¼-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan. While the pork is cooking and resting, prepare the vegetables and grapes.

2

Prep and cook the vegetables and grapes

  • Trim the ends from the Brussels sprouts; cut the sprouts lengthwise into quarters.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half, if desired.
  • Remove any stems from the grapes.

In the same pan used for the pork, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the Brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften and lightly brown, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and grapes and cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to soften and the Brussels sprouts are just tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the vegetables and grapes are cooking, prepare the lemon vinaigrette.

3

Make the lemon vinaigrette

In a small bowl, stir together the lemon vinaigrette base and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Serve

Transfer the vegetables and grapes to individual plates and top with the pork. Spoon over as much lemon vinaigrette as you like and serve any remaining vinaigrette on the side.
