  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Rub pork with 1 teaspoon oil; evenly coat with mustard, dill and fennel seeds. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté in a heavy, nonstick, oven proof pan over medium-high in 1 teaspoon oil until browned all around.

  3. Place skillet in oven and roast pork until a thermometer inserted into thickest part registers 140 degrees and pork juices run clear, 30 to 45 minutes.

  4. Remove pork from oven and transfer to a platter. Tent with foil, and let rest 10 to 20 minutes while you make the gravy.

  5. Add chicken broth to pan; cook over medium-high heat, scraping up browned bits, until liquid has reduced by half, 5 to 7 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk 1 tablespoon flour with 3 tablespoons water. Reduce heat to medium; whisk in flour mixture and balsamic vinegar until sauce is completely smooth and has thickened, 1 to 3 minutes.

  7. To serve, slice the pork about ¼-inch thick, and serve with the gravy.
