This meat and potatoes dish takes advantage of a simple marinade to glaze the pork tenderloin, and a light oil-and-vinegar-based potato salad to round out the dish. Tender but crisp green beans add a nice crunchy contrast to the creamy potatoes and the sharp hit of pickled shallots adds a zing to the potato salad. Dijon and honey are the dynamic duo marinade that imbues the pork with sweet and savory flavor. Don’t worry about overcooking your pork tenderloin, a notoriously dry and treacherous cut, your tenderloin is guaranteed to be perfectly rosy pink all the way through with our precision sous vide technology. Finish the pork with a quick sear in the skillet. The sugars in the marinade will caramelize quickly to give you a beautiful crust.
