Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Herb Crusted Pork Tenderloin

A few years ago my favorite TV shows were Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef. In one of the episodes, Gordon Ramsay cooked lamb ribs in a bright green crust; for me, it was very hard to buy ribs at that time, but it was easy to find any other meat which could be roasted. My choice fell on the pork tenderloin. In the original recipe, the ribs were seared, covered in breading, and then roasted; as far as I remember there was also an olive oil in the breading… Well, I’ve distorted the original recipe a lot but the result is perfect.

No holiday table is complete without mimosa salad from my grandma. In Russia, this layered salad is always mentioned in the same breath as Olivier (known as Russian Salad) and Dressed Herring.
