Servings 4


  • 2- pound pork loin
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 celery stalk diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 lemon sliced for garnish

For Sauce

  • 3 hard-boiled egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons capers drained, rinsed
  • 4 canned anchovy fillets in oil drained
  • 1 canned tuna in oil drained
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper


  • Put 1/2 teaspoon of salt & white pepper on your pork loin. Put your pork loin in a snug pan. Add your wine and water (just enough to cover the pork loin), add your 3 tablespoons of olive oil, put your chopped carrots, celery, and onion in, and bring it all to a boil. Once it is boiling, reduce your heat to simmer, cover, and let it sit for an hour!
  • Hard boil your 3 eggs while the meat is cooking and put them on the side for the time being when they are finished (don’t forget to remove the shell!).
  • After your meat has cooked for an hour, put it in a separate bowl. Strain the juice from the snug pot into the bowl, making sure to keep the veggies on the side. Put a weight of some sort on your pork (with the juice still in the bowl), keep it out, and let it cool to room temp for around a half-hour. In the meantime, we will prepare the tuna sauce.
  • Mix your 3 hard-boiled egg yolks with your dijon mustard. Then, add 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, and 1 tablespoon of white wine vinegar and mix. Now, slowly add your 1/2 cup of olive oil to the mixture, adding it in a thin, continuous stream. Next, stir in your tuna and capers. Keep this sauce on the side while we pure the vegetables in the next step.
  • Put the reserved veggies in a food processor (or use a fork to mix) with the anchovies and process to a puree. Stir the puree into the sauce we just made in step 4.
  • Remove the juice from your pork loin. Place the weight back on it and put it in the fridge for an hour (this makes it easier to slice thin).
  • After an hour, take your pork loin out of the fridge and slice the pork into very thin pieces. Arrange your slices on a plate and, lastly, put your sauce on top of the pork and it is ready to be enjoyed!
