tips & techniques
Cook the farro
1 Cook the farro

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the farro and cook, uncovered, 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm.

2 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the zucchini lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the tomatoes. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the peppers. In a bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), harissa paste, and 1/4 cup of warm water.

Cook the vegetables
3 Cook the vegetables

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced zucchini in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the halved tomatoes and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

Cook & glaze the pork
4 Cook & glaze the pork

Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the za'atar to coat (you may have extra). In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork. Cook 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 4 minutes. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, frequently spooning the glaze over the pork, 1 to 2 minutes for medium (the center may still be slightly pink), or until the pork is coated and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Turn off the heat.

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