Pork Tenderloin

This recipe actually started last night. I decided to try a different kind of meat this week so Allison suggested a pork tenderloin. Aldi has this wonderful pre-marinated pork tenderloin but what’s the fun in that? So I got a 2-lb pork tenderloin from Kroger (that was the smallest they had) and went to work. I wasn’t quite sure how to make the marinade so I perused the wonderful world of online recipes for some ideas. I knew I wanted something that included Dijon mustard, so I found this one:

1/2 c. olive oil

3/4 c lemon juice (supposed to be freshly squeezed)

1 1/2 T rosemary

1 T thyme

garlic powder (or fresh)

2 T Dijon mustard

I mixed all this together, threw in some salt and pepper, and then soaked the tenderloins in it overnight and all day today. Then the lovely Allison put it in the oven at 350 F for 40 min. She also threw some potatoes, zucchini, green peppers, green beans, and onions in some olive oil and sautéd them. I seasoned them with rosemary, garlic powder, seasoned salt, and pepper and let those cook for about 20 min. This was our finished product.

We’re “going green!”

The tenderloin received the Allison stamp of approval but now we have a tenderloin and a half left so if anyone wants leftovers please let me know and I will gladly share with you. Oh and this next photo is for my mother as Allison thought she needed concrete proof that I willingly ate vegetables.

*There is no one holding a gun to my head (per Allison).

Now the world has proof that, yes, Krista will eat veggies. And she actually enjoys them.
