Cold Days, Warm Kitchens

By the second week in January, Christmas is over, New Year’s has been celebrated, and now, well, it’s just January. Holiday decorations have hit the curb and you are trying to stick to your 2017 resolutions. For most of the country, it is also the time of year that winter’s cold, dreary reality has set in.

What is there to look forward to now, you ask? Plenty! Cold days call for warm kitchens full of comfort. Nothing beats a warm, nutritious, home-cooked meal with family to end the day. One cut you can feel good about serving this time of year is pork tenderloin– one of the most tender and leanest cuts of pork. According to the US Department of Agriculture, pork tenderloin contains the same amount of fat and slightly less calories than the same serving of skinless chicken breast!

It’s time to warm up that kitchen. Our recipe for One-Skillet Pork with Wild Rice and Herbs only takes 10 minutes of prep, is full of veggies, and is conveniently made all in one skillet (hence the name).

Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Asian Dry Rub is not only a top-notch meal on its own, but save some tenderloin back to make Baked Pork Egg Rolls tomorrow.

 

Still have your grill sitting out back waiting for its time to shine? Fire it up for Stuffed Pork Tenderloin with Chimichurri for a flavorful feast.

Last but not least, Sautéed Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Lemon-Garlic Sauce deserve a spot in the dinner rotation. Watch how easy the recipe is here:
