Cobb Salad with Maple Pork

Getting reviews...
We took the flavors of maple bacon and applied them to pork tenderloin in this lightened-up version of a Cobb Salad. Sweet and caramelized juices from the meat mingle with a zippy Dijon dressing, blue cheese and cherry tomatoes, hitting all the flavor notes in this easy and satisfying weeknight meal done in under 30 minutes.

  1. Preheat the oven to 450˚ F. Rub the pork pieces with the steak seasoning. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook, turning, until browned all over, 5 to 6 minutes. Brush with the maple syrup. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast until a thermometer inserted into the center registers 140˚ F to 145˚ F, about 5 minutes. Transfer the pork to a cutting board and let rest at least 10 minutes. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons water to the skillet to thin out the pan juices. Reserve the pan juices for serving.
  2. Meanwhile, put the eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat and set aside, covered, 10 minutes. Drain, then run under cold water to cool. Peel and chop the hard-boiled eggs. 
  3. Make the dressing: Whisk the mustard, vinegar and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl. Whisk in the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil in a thin stream until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide the lettuce among plates or shallow bowls. Thinly slice the pork and add to the plates; drizzle with the pan juices. Top the salads with the hard-boiled eggs, avocado, cherry tomatoes and blue cheese and drizzle with the dressing.
