Pairing the most tender cut of pork, the tenderloin, with crunchy walnuts and almonds can prove itself an excellent idea. As well as giving it a sweet and sour touch using a mixture of honey and mustard. So, after searing it, coat your pork accordingly. Serve with butter-sauteed turnip and fennel further cooked in turmeric-flavored heavy cream. This makes for a fine creamy sauce.
