You’ve likely come across figs baked into desserts, dried and nestled onto cheese platters, or preserved and slathered on toast for breakfast. But today, we’re mixing things up by pairing fig jam with tangy balsamic vinegar. The result? A sweet and savory sauce that’ll transform the tender pork tenderloin it’s drizzled on top of.

Yukon Gold Potatoes
Chicken Stock Concentrate
Adjust racks to top and middle positions and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Halve, peel, and finely chop shallot. Strip rosemary leaves from stems; chop leaves until you have 2 tsp (4 tsp for 4 servings). Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Halve lemon.
Toss potatoes on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil, half the chopped rosemary, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast on top rack, tossing halfway through, until tender and crisped, 20-25 minutes.
Meanwhile, pat pork dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add pork and sear, turning occasionally, until browned all over, 4-8 minutes. Transfer to a second baking sheet. Roast on middle rack until cooked through, 10-12 minutes. Let rest a few minutes after removing from oven, then thinly slice pork crosswise.
While pork cooks, in a medium bowl, toss mixed greens with a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in pan used for pork over medium heat. Add shallot and remaining chopped rosemary. Cook, stirring, until softened, 1-2 minutes. Stir in stock concentrate, vinegar, jam, and ¼ cup water (½ cup for 4 servings). Simmer until thick and saucy, 2-3 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4) until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide potatoes, salad, and pork between plates. Drizzle pan sauce over pork and serve.
