  • Summary

    Heritage pig breeds spend their days pasturing in a woodland environment. They have more marbling and flavor than their modern counterparts, which are bred for leanness. Here, roasted pork tenderloin is served with a warm salad of farm-grown vegetables, Israeli couscous, and homemade harissa paste.

    Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    • 2 cups Israeli couscous
    • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
    • 1 pound fingerling potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1 bunch small carrots, preferably heirloom in a mix of colors, scrubbed or peeled and trimmed
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • Coarse salt
    • 2 pork tenderloins (2 1/4 pounds total)
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 tablespoon safflower oil
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 onion, thinly sliced
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped
    • 1/2 cup Harissa Paste, plus more for serving
