We had such a busy week last week…with school starting and football season in mid swing it felt like we were saying “hi and bye” and just making it to all the places we had to be. We woke up this morning exhausted and in need of a “family day”. It was the perfect rainy Sunday to stay home.
This evening my husband’s parents came over to fish and have dinner for the holiday ! My in-laws were such a huge bonus when I married Geoff…I love them like like my own and can’t say enough about them. So, naturally I show my love for them by cooking for them…
Here is what we had:
Marinated Pork Tenderloin , fresh green beans with slivered almonds, baked apples, mashed redskins, and rolls.
This takes a little time..but fresh green beans are crisp and delicious and well worth the effort if you have the time. I boiled them in water for 5 mins, then made them the same as I make the Speedy Gourmet Green Beans with almonds.
I heated the grill to med-high heat and covered it in foil. I placed the 2 tenderloins on the grill and sprinkled them with a pork rub. I grilled the meat 7 mins x 4 turns= 28 mins total. Then, I took the meat off the grill and covered it with foil and let it stand for 5 mins before I sliced it. You can see in the photo the meat is still juicy and not overcooked. Whatever you do…don’t over cook pork! It gets very dry!
