How to Make It

Step 1    

In a mini food processor, puree the beet peels, salt and caraway seeds until a paste forms. On a rimmed baking sheet, rub each pork tenderloin with 2 tablespoons of the beet paste. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 2    

Preheat the oven to 400°. Drizzle the pork with the 
2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with pepper. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 135°. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice the pork 1/2 inch thick and transfer to a platter. Drizzle with olive oil and serve with lemon wedges.

Suggested Pairing

Dark-berried, lightly herbal Loire Valley Cabernet Franc.

Review Body: That looks good. I never had beets but I surely would like to try this with my tenderloin cooking. I also didn't realize that pork tenderloin cooks that fast.

Review Body: I totally appreciate your cueing us in this valuable recipe using yellow beet peels. This is actually the first time I heard about it. I just bought my first beet yesterday and I'm quite excited to do this today! Thanks.

Review Body: If the beets are too hard, is it ok to steam them first before making a puree with it?
