Look for jarred or canned piquillo peppers in specialty stores or upscale groceries. They add bittersweet notes deeper than those of roasted red bell peppers or pimientos, although either makes a fine substitute. Similarly, using smoked paprika in the rub adds depth to an already great main dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Combine the first 4 ingredients; rub over pork. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 5 minutes, browning on all sides. Wrap handle of skillet with foil; place pan in oven. Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink). Remove pork from pan, and let stand for 10 minutes. Cut the pork crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

Step 3

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion; cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add prosciutto and garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add spinach, tossing to combine. Add water, vinegar, and honey; cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, tossing frequently. Stir in piquillo peppers. Arrange about 1/3 cup spinach mixture on each of 6 plates; top each serving with 3 ounces pork.
