Jim B. shared with me a super easy way to make a pork tenderloin. I just so happened to have pork tenderloin in the frig and made it that night. It was delish! Thanks Jim!
He took a pork tenderloin rubbed it down with olive oil, salt, pepper and then sprinkled Ancho chili powder all over it and rubbed it in. Seared it in a skillet with half butter/half olive oil, then put it in an 8 inch square pan into a 425 degree oven for about 25 minutes. Cover it, then let it rest about 5 minute.
Since I used ancho chili powder, I thought I would serve it with a Guacamole and corn with a dash of Ancho Chili powder mixed in. This would also be great sliced thin for a pork taco.
Here is the Guacamole recipe. Sorry no photos.
3 clove garlic
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 tomatoes, medium chopped
2 avocados, medium chopped
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1/2 of a lime squeezed
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
Mix it all up. Adjust seasonings to your taste. You can spice it up with some minced jalapeno. This would be great with tortilla chips.
The tenderloin came in a package of 2. So, I decided to use one of our favorite spice blends…Greek Seasoning. It turned out great. The only thing that you need to watch when using your favorite spice blend, is if it has salt and pepper already in it. Then you may need to skip the salt and pepper step. I did not pay attention to that and really rubbed in a lot of Greek seasoning and it was a bit salty and peppery.
We put Greek Seasoning on everything…green beans, potatoes, meat, chicken etc.
There are a ton of different seasoning blends out there that you can use with this recipe…the possibilities of endless 🙂
Grace and I planted watermelons is our landscaping this spring. We harvested 2 watermelons 🙂 So proud!
Adding watermelon to your landscaping is a great way of adding foliage to it and if you do not have space for a garden. Kathy, my sister-in-law has been doing this for years and producing a lot of watermelons.
