Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare pork: Rub pork with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 45 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, preheat a gas grill to medium-high.

  • Turn off one burner (leaving one to two burners lit, depending on your grill). Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Place the pork over the lit burner(s). Grill, turning once or twice, until browned on the top and bottom, 6 to 8 minutes total. Move the pork to the unheated portion of grill. Close the lid and grill-roast the pork for 20 minutes. Rotate the pork 180 degrees, close the lid and continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the meat registers 145 degrees F, 20 to 30 minutes more. Transfer to a clean cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

  • To prepare vinaigrette: Combine herbs, shallot, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, honey, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 teaspoon salt and crushed red pepper in a medium bowl. While whisking, slowly drizzle in oil; continue whisking until well combined.

  • To prepare bean puree: Puree beans and broth in a food processor until smooth. Transfer to a medium saucepan and warm over medium heat. Stir in oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.

  • To serve, spread the bean puree on a platter, top with the sliced pork and spoon the vinaigrette down the middle of the pork.


Make Ahead Tip: Prepare beans (Step 5) and refrigerate for up to 3 days; reheat just before serving, thinning with broth as needed.

An oiled grill rack keeps your food from sticking. Once your grill is good and hot, dip a folded paper towel in a little oil, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack.
