I am on a huge pork kick lately. I'm not sure where this sudden swap has come from, but it means that chicken is out and pork is in. I'm so bored by chicken.... even when I try to make it exciting, it still fails to impress me. I'm over it like a bad date.
But pork... oh pork. When done right, pork is just an excellent meat. I used to buy pork because it was on sale. I would then cook it all wrong and force my ex to eat it. Then I would be upset when he didn't love it, or even like it, for that matter. And I am all like, shut up. and eat the damn pork that I have served you. we're poor and it was on sale. Except we weren't poor at all. But it was definitely on sale. And sista loves a good sale. (Apologies and I owe ya a solid pork dinner kid....)
So here's a new favorite pork recipe of mine:
Spicy Lemon- Rosemary Pork Tenderloin (from 2011 Food and Wine Cookbook):
- 6 tbsp EVOO
- 3/4 fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 rosemary leaves
- 2 tbsp crushed red pepper
- 6 garlic cloves
- four 1 pound pork tenderloins
- salt and pepper
Heat up a pan with a little EVOO and get ready to sear up the sides of these pork loins. Also, heat your oven to 400.
