Two fantastic dinner recipes to share. One from Dinosaurs Can’t Eat Pizza and one from the Food Network. Both absolutely worth the effort – which, given my standards as you all should know by now – is very minimal!
I ended up making this twice one week because the first time I made a 1/2 recipe since I only had one pack of thighs. The boys finished it in one night, and 28 immediately asked for another round so I made a full recipe on the weekend. Those leftovers also were gone quickly and then he used the remaining sauce to make another batch of chicken breasts in a skillet. Apparently the sauce is the THANG. The recipe is equally good with either white or dark meat, though I have always preferred dark since it retains moisture better.
Pork Tenderloin with Seasoned Rub
1 teaspoon each of:
Salt to taste
1 – 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin
1 table spoon olive oil
1 Teaspoon minced garlic
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients until they are well combined and form a seasoning. Sprinkle the seasoning rub over all sides of the tenderloin, pressing gently so that the seasoning adheres to the meat.
In a large skillet, heat oil and saute minced garlic for 1 minute. Add the tenderloin and cook for 5 minutes on each side, using thongs to turn meat. Transfer to a roasting pan and bake for 20 minutes. Slice and serve.
