Herb And Dijon-Crusted Christmas Yak Tenderloin (serves 2)


1 Yak tenderloin, trimmed - (about 20 ounces)
1/4 cup Vegetable oil
2 tablespoons chopped mixed fresh herbs - (including thyme, basil - and rosemary)
Salt and black pepper
3/4 cup ground pork rinds
2 tablespoon Dijon mustard


1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Brush tenderloin with 1 tablespoon oil, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon herbs and season with salt and pepper.
2. Heat a large sauté pan over high heat, and sear tenderloin on all sides until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a large roasting pan, and roast to desired doneness (10 to 12 minutes for medium rare). Remove from oven, and let rest 3 minutes.
3. In a bowl, combine remaining herbs with pork skin crumbs, and season with a little salt and pepper. Spread mustard over top of tenderloin, and press seasoned bread crumbs onto mustard to form a crust.
4. Heat remaining oil in a sauté pan over high heat. Place tenderloin crust side down in pan, and cook until crust is golden brown. Transfer to a board, and let rest until ready to carve.

You can order your Yak meat online here-

Where would one even buy yak?

Looks good though. :)

Is it safe to assume this recipe would work well with any other roast.... assuming yak isn't readily available at my local supermarket?

Doug Varrieur:
Hi Morgan, I posted the link to buy Yak online here in the states, Yes, mdanziger, any beef, bear, lamb...they would all work.
