I'm a fan of meat made in a pot on the stove because it's fast and easy to make. It's also delicious. The other day I made this recipe for a weeknight dinner and everyone enjoyed it.
SAVORY, TENDER & EASY PORK TENDERLOIN
1 kilo (about 2 lbs) of pork tenderloin cut into large cubes (if the meat is marbled, even better)
Place meat in a metal or glass bowl and add the following:
2-3 large cloves of garlic, minced
2 t paprika
1 1/2 t salt
1-2 t fresh ground black pepper (however spicy you like it)
2 t dried rosemary leaves
Coat the meat evenly with this mixture, cover and place in fridge for at least one hour.
When you are ready to cook: In a large pot heat up a generous drizzle of olive oil and brown the marinated meat on high heat for about 3 minutes.Lower heat and add:
1 T tomato paste
generous splash of red wine
Cover meat and let it slow cook for about 40-50 minutes, checking on it frequently and stirring so it does not burn or stick. You may add a spoon or two of wine to keep it from sticking, if needed.
There will be a nice, thick "sauce" created from the oil, fat, and wine that is delicious. The meat will be tender, savory and juicy. Serve with lentil rice and squash (shown) and pair with a medium red wine like a Shiraz. Mmmmm....Thank you for reading!
