pork tenderloin recipe, perfect for fall !! i made this today and it was delicious so i thought i would share. you can easily replace pork with chicken or turkey by the way!
for 2 lbs of pork/meat or so:
- 1 big yellow onion, chopped as you wish (i like big chunks for a recipe like that)
- something like 1 cup of carrots, i cut them in relatively big chunks too
- 1 or 2 cortland apples, it’s up to you really, cut in the way you like the best !! (i think granny smith apples would taste really good too!!)
- like half a cup of white wine (because let’s be fancy) (i think red wine would work too tbh)
- dry mustard and regular mustard like the one you put in burgers or something
- 1 1/2 cup of broth consisting of black tea (not too strong though), beef and chicken broth powder or whatever kind of broth you like i don’t care
- 1/3 cup of finely chopped green onion
- 1 cup of not so finely chopped baby spinach
- thyme, oregano and garlic (or garlic powder), fresh or not it’s ok let’s be real. i had fresh thyme for that recipe though. and add parmesan too but just a little of it.
- cook the apple(s), onion and carrots in a frying pan. add a small amount of fat (a bit of olive oil is good for you!!) and caramelize the fuck out of them. i like them well cooked.
- when they’re cooked, transfer the apples, onion and carrots into your preferred cooking pot. this goes into the oven, so choose wisely.
- keep your frying pan at medium-high heat and drop the pork in there. you may need to add a little more oil but i didn’t.
- sear the pork so it roasts on the outside a little. while one side roasts, add mustard and dry mustard to the other ones, then switch and add garlic powder etc. keep that going until the colour is brown and nice. it also smells really good.
- when you’re done, add the wine and hear the nice sound it makes as all the good roast taste mixes up with the wine. leave that in there for a minute, then drop all of it in the cooking pot with the vegetables.
- add the broth to it. boil water and make tea, then add the chicken and beef powder, thyme and oregano to your taste and there you go.
- put the cover on the cooking pot and cook this thing at 350°F for about 25 minutes. when it’s done, take out the cooking pot and add the green onion, parmesan and spinach. return the cooking pot (still covered) in the oven for at least 10 minutes, or more if you like the meat well cooked (and if it’s chicken of course you DO NOT want undercooked chicken)
and that’s it sweeties it’s really good ok trust me i’m not a pro but i know what i’m talking about
