Preparation for Pork Loin:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°
  2. Lay the loin out on a meat-safe cutting board and pat dry with a paper towel. Score the fat side in a 1” diamond pattern. (It’s all for the presentation) 
  3. Liberally salt and pepper on both sides. (If you have favorite savory pork or turkey seasoning use it too)
  4. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a heavy-bottomed, oven-safe skillet (cast iron works best)
  5. Once the oil is hot, brown meat on both sides starting with the fat side down. 3-4 min. per side.
  6. Place in the oven on a middle rack with the fat said up. Cook to a 135° internal temp. 50 min.
  7. Slice the loin into 3/8” slices and drizzle with fig sauce.
  8. Rest for 3-5 minutes
