Saucy Pork Tenderloin
Sundays. It’s one of my favourite days of the week. Most people despise Sundays for the sheer fact that it’s the end of the weekend and people are gearing themselves up for another long work week.
For me, one of the big reasons why I love Sundays is because of Sunday night dinners. This is when my boyfriend/partner person rolls up his sleeves and makes the kitchen his kingdom.
Since we have been together, he has been a whiz at throwing ingredients together to create some amazing dishes. This past Sunday night was no exception. His latest creation was a saucy pork tenderloin dish.
Readers, my boyfriend/partner person had to all but swat me out of the kitchen in order to cook this dish. I took so many shots of him preparing this meal, but I am only going to share the best ones with you, along with what he did to pull this masterpiece together.
2 Cuts of Pork Tenderloin
1 Can of Whole Tomatoes
1 Onion; half of it chopped
1 Clove of Garlic
2 Handfuls of Baby Spinach
2 Tablespoons of Butter
Thyme, Salt and Pepper for taste.
My guy first seared the two pork tenderloin pieces on medium temperature along with the butter, the garlic, and the onions that have been chopped for about five minutes per side.
The can of tomatoes was then placed into a casserole dish. He added the pork tenderloin pieces, along with the chopped onions and garlic. The spinach and the onions were then added to the mix all around the casserole dish to spread their flavours around, as well as to provide a preview for our meal. The dish was then popped in the oven for about an hour to finish cooking (this time may differ depending in the size of your cuts of pork tenderloin. He checked on it to make sure it was cooked thoroughly).
This is how my personal chef plated the finished product! I had to stop myself from devouring all of this loveliness so I could take a picture of it. He added Basmati rice and yellow beans as sides to complement the tenderloin.
This saucy pork tenderloin was amazing! My plate was emptied within minutes of it being presented to me. I love how my guy can just make a meal like this on the fly so well. He’s a very resourceful fellow! Since there were leftovers of this meal, I was more than happy to enjoy the rest of it the next day for my lunch! I mixed it together with some rice, and it was just as tasty.
Another great feature of creating this dish is that it can be customized to your liking, so you can add or take away ingredients my guy used, and you’ll have your own take on this meal! This saucy pork tenderloin dish has easily made its way onto my list of top five favourite meals my guy prepares for my family.
Readers, let me know what you would do to make this saucy pork tenderloin dish your own?
Until my next post, Readers!
