From the Test Kitchen

Tonight’s recipe showcases one of our favorite summer fruits. Tossed with shallot and lime, fresh peach makes for a deliciously juicy, sweet salsa—the perfect complement for our savory-sweet pork roast, rubbed with seasonings like pimentón (or Spanish paprika) and brown sugar. For another seasonal touch, we’re adding zucchini to our side of fragrant jasmine rice.

Sear & roast the pork:
1 Sear & roast the pork:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Pat the pork dry with paper towels; season on all sides with salt, pepper and the spice blend. Rub the seasonings into the pork. In a large pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned pork; cook, turning occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Transfer to a foil-lined sheet pan, leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan on the stove. Roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until cooked through. (An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.) Remove from the oven and set aside to rest for at least 5 minutes.

While the pork sears, in a small pot, combine the rice, 1½ cups of water and a big pinch of salt. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low.
