tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans. Cut off the top and bottom of the kohlrabi to create a flat surface; using a knife, cut down along the curve of the kohlrabi to remove the green skin. Halve lengthwise; if present, remove the core, then cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel the carrots; quarter lengthwise. Halve the lemon crosswise and remove the seeds. Pit and roughly chop the dates. Roughly chop the pistachios

Grill the pork
2 Grill the pork

Pat the pork dry with paper towels; drizzle with olive oil and season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the dukkah to coat (you may have extra). Grill 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* 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.
