  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Make It

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a small baking dish and large baking sheet with foil. Set pork in the baking dish and coat with the mustard.

Roast the pork for about 35 minutes, or until a meat thermometer registers 145 degrees F.

2. Meanwhile, on the baking sheet toss the asparagus with olive oil and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Roast until tender, about 10 minutes.

3. Slice the pork into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Top the asparagus with the chopped egg, and serve with the pork.
