Pork Tenderloin on a Vegetable Bed

“I got the original recipe from Johanna Jones-she owns and operates a pig farm in South Carolina. This is a "wow, clean out the garden, all in one yummy" summer recipe. I've changed the peppers-she used green and I've added more green onions-Johanna used three. Other than that "this is the Bomb!"”

Directions

  1. Combine the thyme, pepper and salt.
  2. Roll the pork, pressing the mixture into it.
  3. Cook the tenderloin in oil, in a large-cast iron if you have it-skillet on medium heat until done-about 30 min.
  4. Remove from the skillet, place on a cutting board and cover with foil to keep warm.
  5. In the same skillet, same heat cook the remaining ingredients except beans and tomatoes to preference-we like the veg a bit underdone.
  6. Add the beans and tomatoes and remaining thyme and heat through, about 4-5 min.
  7. Spoon into a large serving plate-slice the pork thin and place on top.
  8. A few thyme sprigs is a nice touch.
