Preheat large frying pan on medium high heat and pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees. Rub loin with oil then herb rub, salt and pepper. If using the tenderloin, then wrap in thin sliced prosciutto to keep the meat moist.
Brown off meat in the frying pan and then transfer to the oven in the same pan. Leaving pan uncovered cook until an internal temperature of 120 to 125 degrees F is reached then remove from the oven and cover with foil to rest. Slice and serve.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Place Yams in a roasting pan and sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Drizzle with duck fat and toss until the yam is well coated. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the yams are tender and caramelized.
Cream the yams with more duck fat (if desired) and maple syrup. Season to taste.
Place all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor or blender and blend until slightly chunky.
