No words can really describe this dish. Its simple, elegant, and mouthwatering!!
I was in the mood for some good ol’ fashioned pork, but wanted to bump it up a bit. Make it classy, cause we are a classy broad!
In our most recent purchase from our local farm, we received a handful of fresh lavender and pink peppercorns. Now if you follow my Instagram, I posted some fun facts about the pink peppercorn. One of them being that they are part of the cashew family, so if you are allergic to tree nuts, you best be staying away from pink peppercorn!
….Back to the recipe.
If you’ve never tried lavender in dishes, you may want to think about starting that tradish. I’m sure many of you even have lavender growing around your house. Lavender goes great with rosemary, thyme, and even fennel. Our dish was simple: lavender + rosemary.

–Place pork in hot skillet and let cook 7 min. Flip, and sprinkle more lavender and rosemary over it. Let cook for another 7 min.
–Remove from heat and let rest for at least 5 min.
