Grilled Pork Loin with Roasted Harvest Vegetables
Enjoy the flavors of fall with this grilled pork loin, served over a bed of farro with roasted harvest vegetables and ripe plums.
This is my favorite time of year and I especially love a recipe that exudes delicious fall flavors and a grilled pork loin, seasoned with chopped rosemary and garlic, does just that. The best way to enjoy the season is by cooking with the fruits and vegetables that are plentiful during fall harvest. Adding sliced plums, along with roasted brussel sprouts and onion over a bed of seasoned farro makes for the perfect accompaniment to this grilled pork loin.
I must say, we couldn’t get enough of this pork tenderloin! It was seasoned with simple ingredients, but when grilled and served with the farro and harvest vegetables it was a wonderful combination of flavors. We each grabbed for second helpings and that included a few extra scoops of the fresh plums and farro. The touch of the sweet, delicious flavors of the plums were unexpectedly tasty and I kept wanting more.
This is one of those meals that’s great to serve for just a couple (hello leftovers), a family (everyone will love the pork and plum combo) or a large gathering with the holidays around the corner. As the weather starts to cool down a bit, the pork loin is on the grill and you're gathered around the dining table with a bottle of Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Pinot Noir to catch up on the day’s activities or share stories about family. Once the grilled pork loin is served over a bed of farro and the harvest vegetables, pour another glass and enjoy the abundance of flavors that emulate the best of fall. Cheers!
