Cooking....my other passion!

PORK ITS WHATS FOR DINNER!

Today I wanted to share with you a couple meals I have planned using lean cuts of pork! Love Pork!

First one...Who doesn't love breaded tenderloins but if you like us it is hard to find a good place to get one. So why not make them yourself? Its not hard at all! Here is our way to make a simple breaded pork tenderloin.

We bought Bonesless Butterfly chops and we asked the meat department at Fresh Market to run them through the meat tenderizer a few times. When I got home I realized they were pretty big so I cut them in half and then I placed plastic wrap over them and pounded them really super thin with a meat mallot. Once I got them pounded out super thin I seasoned them with just salt and pepper. Then I dipped them in egg and then in Plain bread crumbs. Put them in a skillet with enough oil to deep fry them. In our case it was probably just an inch of oil or so because we just flipped them and did the other side. Slap those babies on a bun with mustard and ketchup and YUMMMY!!! I took a pic of the meat before I deep fried them but honestly once they were done I was so hungry I didn't get the final pic taken!!

DO IT YOURSELF BREADED TENDERLOINS








Tonights meal is just a simple one as well. This time with Bone in pork chops. We seasoned them up and then chopped onion and red pepper and then slathered them with Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce and baked them in the oven. They came out so tender and delicious!
