- General preparation
Peel and dice the sweet potatoes. Chop the red onion. Finely chop the shallot. Cut the pork in 150g portions.
Clean the Brussels sprouts, remove the first leaves and keep aside in ice old water.
- For the sweet potato mash
In a large saucepan, drizzle some olive oil and sweat the red onion. Allow to caramelise then add the diced sweet potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and cover with cold water and add the rosemary sprigs. Bring to a boil, then reduce the fire intensity. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Until potatoes are soft. Drain, taking care to preserve a little of the cooking liquid and remove the rosemary sprigs. In the bowl of a food processor, place the sweet potatoes and mix them to create a very smooth puree. Add some butter and a little cooking liquid to adjust the texture. Adjust the seasoning.
- Pork tenderloin and cider reduction preparation
Season with salt and pepper the pork tenderloins.
Lay down the slices of bacon on some saran wrap.
Roll the pork and the bacon.
In a skillet, pour a little oil and brown them. They should be nicely browned on both sides. Finish cooking in oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Just before serving, slice the pork. Using the same skillet, sweat the shallots and deglaze with apple cider. Add the dried cranberries, reduce by half then add the demi-glace.
Cook for few minutes and season to taste.
- Brussels sprouts petals
Season the Brussels sprouts with salt, put in a bowl with a bit of water and cook for 1 minute in the microwave.
- To serve
Serve the puree using a ring mold and place the pork on top. Garnish with a drizzle of cider reduction with dried cranberries.
Decorate with Brussels petals.
Pork flavor matches fruits very nicely. You may substitute dried cranberries by dried apricots or cherries.
