Thin pork strips marinated in herbs and pepper.
Made from peppers grown in the village of Espelette, in the heart of the French Basque region, Espelette pepper is slightly hot with a sweet, fruity flavour.
|3/4 cup||olive oil||190 mL|
|2 tbsp||paprika||18 g|
|1 1/4 tsp||Espelette pepper (powder)||4 g|
|4 cloves||garlic, minced|
|20 leaves||fresh sage, minced||6 g|
|2 tsp||dried oregano||1 g|
|1/2 tbsp||salt||7 g|
|1/4 tsp||ground pepper||1 g|
|2||pork tenderloin||600 g|
Before you start
If the Espelette pepper is not available, it may be replaced by a mixture of cayenne pepper and paprika.
The fillets must be marinated at least 2 hours or overnight but not much longer.
- Combine the oil, paprika, and Espelette pepper (or cayenne) in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat about 5 min to infuse the oil, whisking occasionally. Cool to room temperature.
- Mince the garlic and sage, then add them to the mixture. Add the dried oregano, then season with salt and pepper.
- Cut each pork tenderloin lengthwise into 4 strips. Place each strip between sheets of parchment paper and pound to about a 5 mm thickness. Arrange the strips in a glass dish, pour the marinade over the top, then turn them to coat evenly. Cover and chill the pork in the refrigerator at least 2 hours or overnight but not much longer.
- Scrape most of the marinade from the pork strips then grill them over medium-high heat until just cooked through, a little less than 2 min per side. Alternatively, the strips may be cooked in a broiler pan in the oven, or in a heavy-bottom pan on the stovetop.
- Serve immediately.
The first step oil-pepper infusion may be done a few days in advance.
