Tasty Tuesday – The Best Pork Ever (Not Really…)

This week’s kitchen experiment was somewhat successful…  The entire process was definitely mufti-faceted, we experimented on many levels with this week’s recipe choice.

First I found a recipe on Pinterest for a dish claiming to be “The Best Pork Ever.”

I was intrigued by the possibility of a yummy pork tenderloin recipe.  I don’t eat red meat (no lamb or beef) and Gwen’s not a fan of seafood, so we have a somewhat limited protein selection.  Usually, chicken is our go to main dish, but there’s only so many different ways to make chicken before it starts to get boring and repetitive.  Which means that an interesting pork recipe is always a great option!

The next even more interesting part of this week’s experiment is that Gwen was the one that actually prepared the meal.  I wasn’t feeling very well and she volunteered to test the recipe, so that’s what we did…

Here’s her recap of the cooking process:

First she gathered the ingredients.

Then she preheated the oven to 350 degrees and cleaned the tenderloins.  Once they were rinsed off she poked holes in the pieces and coated them with the minced garlic.  Next she chopped up the potatoes (which were our addition to the recipe).

After the potatoes were chopped up she went on to make the sauce to coat the pork tenderloin.  It was a quick and easy marinade type of sauce and once it was ready she poured it over both the pork and the potatoes.

Then it was into the oven for about an hour, while she made some veggies to accompany the meat and potatoes.  When it was finished she took it out of the oven and cut it into medallions to serve the meal.

Now, as to whether or not this is the best pork ever…  I can honestly say that I don’t actually think it is the best.  I did like the dish.  I probably won’t make it again without adjusting it some.  I found it to be a tad too sweet, so I’ll probably increase the amount of mustard next time.

Do any of you have any suggestions for pork dishes that we can try???
