  • Summary

    Farro verde is harvested early, when still green, then roasted for extra nuttiness and flavor. Regular farro can be substituted. Grilling the bone-in loin with the fat cap still intact ensures juicy, flavorful meat that won't dry out on the grill.

    Ingredients

    • 1 6-bone section of a bone-in pork loin (5 to 6 pounds), preferably with fat cap attached
    • Kosher salt and coarsely ground black pepper
    • 3 cups farro verde
    • 2 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken broth, preferably homemade
    • 1 fresh bay leaf
    • Kosher salt
    • 3 tablespoons chopped shallot (from 1 large shallot)
    • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic (from 3 cloves)
    • 2 cups packed flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
    • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
    • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves
    • 1 fresh bay leaf, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
    • 8 plums, such as Flavor Grenade, Dapple Dandy, Green Gage, Santa Rosa, Flavor King, Catalina, or Elephant Heart, halved, pitted, and cut into wedges, for serving
    • Thyme, oregano, and opal basil sprigs (optional), for serving
