    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Remove the spreadable butter from the refrigerator to soften. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the potatoes lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Place in a large bowl; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

    2 Roast & finish the vegetables

    Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the potato pieces on the foil. 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. Roast 10 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Reserving the bowl, carefully add the seasoned carrots to the other side of the sheet pan. Return to the oven and roast 13 to 15 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Transfer to the reserved bowl. Add the softened butter and lemon purée; stir to coat.

    3 Cook the pork

    Meanwhile, pat the pork dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle 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.* 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.
