Herb & Garlic Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Sunday Kim and my granddaughter came up for lunch and for a visit.  It was wonderful spending time with them and watching my granddaughter crawling all over and seeing toys strewn about the floor lol.  It’s been a long time since there have been toys all over…. well, except for dog toys!  I actually remembered to take something out to thaw to get ready for dinner and I ended up making this pork tenderloin and some potato stacks that I will post later!

Dillon and Chris love this type of pork tenderloin…. well, I should amend that to say they like pork tenderloin no matter how it’s prepared but this is a favourite! The fact that the prep time for this is almost nil, it’s a great quick fix but delicious dinner! (AND because I made 2 of them, I now have another quick freezer meal for when I need it!

Triple Threat Pork Tenderloin

Lol… I didn’t know what else to call it that wouldn’t end up being a paragraph in name…. pork tenderloin rubbed with spices and brown sugar, rolled in bacon and then smothered in a maple mustard sauce.  Isn’t that a mouthful?  I think the title I decided on works just fine!

I really couldn’t decided which way I wanted to cook the pork tenderloin for dinner the other night so I decided to combine a few different ways and the end result was a very flavourful pork tenderloin that even passed the Chris Chocolate Milk test lol!

Garlic Chili Pork Tenderloin

I spent some time on the weekend getting my gardens ready for winter. By the time I came in the house I realized I hadn’t planned dinner.  While I do have some of my make ahead meals in the freezer already I really wanted to save them… so I decided to thaw a package of pork tenderloin I bought and make them.  I mixed up a marinade/sauce to cook them in and now I also have the second tenderloin to add to my freezer meals list!

The sauce was very quick to mix up and the pork ended up with just the right amount of spicy and sweet!

Spicy Pork Ramen Noodle Dinner

When I made Pork Tenderloin the other night, I made two, knowing I was planning on make this recipe later in the week.  I wanted to have something quick to make for the day I had my out of town doctor’s appointment because they always leave me completely exhausted.  This seemed like a perfect way to make use of the leftover pork tenderloin from the other night!

Pork Tenderloin with Gravy

Again, this isn’t a summer meal but I cooked it anyway.  I so prefer cool/cold weather cooking… casseroles, slow cooked roasts, and that sort of thing.  There are so many comfort foods that are more suited for the cooler weather and I can’t wait to get back to that kind of cooking.

While the crock pot produces some wonderful meals without heating up the kitchen, I find you still don’t feel like eating anything that “heavy” during the summer months. I think this recipe qualifies as that type of meal but it didn’t stop Chris and Dillon from digging in!

I use this same recipe to cook a beef roast because it always comes out tender and very flavourful.

Cajun BBQ Pork Tenderloin

I still had 2 of the pork tenderloin I bought in the freezer from when they were on sale a week or so ago. The first 2 I used to make my “Canadian Sausages” from but wanted to do something different with these two.  I ended up making a slightly spicy, delicious Cajon pork tenderloin!

Apple Dijon Pork Tenderloin (and Veggies)

Yesterday was actually a cooler, dreary sort of day.  Not a day that you particularly feel like cooking, let alone BBQing…. so I made a one pan dinner for the boys and it was a big hit.  I love one pan dinners…. only one dish once it’s oven ready and if you are feeling as lazy as I did yesterday that one pan can be a recyclable aluminum pan lol!
