    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; large dice the leaves. Medium dice the potatoes.

    Roast the vegetables
    2 Roast the vegetables

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the carrot pieces and diced cabbage on the foil. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the spice blend; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 21 to 23 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Cook & mash the potatoes
    3 Cook & mash the potatoes

    Meanwhile, add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the buttermilk and 2 tablespoons of olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork or potato masher, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

    Cook the pork
    4 Cook the pork

    Meanwhile, pat the pork dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for pork.

    Make the sauce
    5 Make the sauce

    To the pan of reserved fond, add the vinegar, demi-glace, fig spread, and 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook on medium-high, stirring frequently and scraping up any fond, 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Turn off the heat and stir in the butter until melted and combined. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
