It has been a very long day today and dinner was made at speed of light. A very simple pork tenderloin seared and a green salad.
We always have a couple of pork tenderloins in the freezer. Easy to prepare and in so many different way. Anything taste good with the pork tenderloin. Herbes de Province, honey, balsamic vinegar, madeira…. the possibilities are endless. Most times I like to slice it and pound the small cutlets. The cooking time is even shorter although I must pay most attention as it they cook in a flash.
Searing it on the stove will keep all the juice internally. Finished it up in the hot oven will cook the inside of the pork tenderloin without drying out.
Perfect ending to a very busy day.
Now ice cream and relaxing.
To all, good night.
