tips & techniques
Roast the pork & broccoli:
1 Roast the pork & broccoli:

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into large pieces, keeping the florets intact. Place on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer on one side of the sheet pan. Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season on all sides with salt, pepper, and the spice blend. Place on the other side of the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil; turn to coat. Roast, rotating the sheet pan halfway through, 26 to 28 minutes, or until the broccoli is browned and the pork is cooked through. (An instant-read thermometer inserted into the pork should register 145°F.) Remove from the oven. Transfer the roasted pork to a cutting board and let rest for at least 5 minutes.

While the pork rests, in the same pan, heat 1 ½ tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the flour and remaining garlic paste; season with salt and pepper.
