Author Notes: Roasted pork tenderloin topped with a tangy apple, celery root, and tarragon slaw. Riley Wofford

Serves: 4 to 6

Ingredients

  • 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and julienned
  • 1/2 celery root, peeled and julienned
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped tarragon leaves
  • 2 teaspoons whole grain mustard
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 (1 pound) pork tenderloins
  • 1/2 cup baby arugula leaves

Directions

  1. Stir together the apple, celery root, shallot, vinegar, tarragon, mustard, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork on both sides with salt and pepper and add to the skillet. Sear for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until a golden brown crust forms. Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork registers 160°F. Remove from the oven and transfer the pork to a cutting board. Tent with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Slice the pork into ½-inch thick slices and arrange on plates. Stir the arugula into the celery root slaw and spoon over the pork.
