Gads - wish I had seen this earlier. I have scads of pork recipes. I think I eat mostly pork and chicken and seafood, seafood, seafood, a bit of fish and little beef.
this is my go to recipe when I want to impress but you could (and I would) do it just for yourself!
This normally uses 2 tenderloins tied together, but you could do just one. Fold the thin end under to make the whole piece of meat more even.
tenderloin, bacon, garlic, apples, onion, stock
following is rough written so read thru...
Season, chopped sage (or dried), minced garlic, salt, pepper. Spread bacon out as a blanket, lay tenderloin on top, crisscross bacon over the tenderloin in a chevron pattern. Tie it up snug with twine, length wise and crosswise.
Preheat oven - 425
Heat frying pan big enough to hold tenderloin, lightly brown tenderloin on all sides (probably 10 min. or so) Transfer to baking pan with a rack, dump it in the oven for about 30 min. Internal temp should be 145. Onto the cutting board and foil for 10/15 min.
Meanwhile, peel core & slice apple/s and onion.
Using the fat from the frying pan, over medium heat, cook onion 'bout 10 min (brown it) add some flour, 1 minute, add broth, apple slices, simmer 10 or so, till sauce is thickened and apples tender.
Snip off lengthwise string first then the crosswise strings. Slice Serve on apples drizzled with sauce.
And "pig" out with mashers on the side, carrots, etc.

LMAO You beat me to it! You forgot fried bacon, though.


How about delicious BBQ baby back, pork ribs?

Nothing highlights porkiness for me like ribs! If I had been pork deprived for an extended time, the firs two things I would crave would be ribs and/or bacon.

Yup, ribs. I'd do ribs. Himself actually smoked them once, a couple years ago, and had no clue on what he was doing. They were wonderful...

Ribs. Or bacon. Maybe a pulled pork. Wrap individual servings of the leftovers and freeze, and take them for lunch when the urge for pork becomes really strong. That's as long as Beloved Wife isn't adverse to having some pig spirited away in the freezer while she's in the house.

Country-style pork ribs. They can be grilled in a relatively short time. They give you a combination of the lean loin and fattier dark meat of the shoulder and ribs. You can marinate, rub, mop and baste them any way you like and there need be no leftovers.

A larger package of those and you could make green chili with part of it.

You are all evil people, but I like you. Undermining my wife's heartfelt religious views. But hey they aren't mine...

Thanks for the recipes. I hope you know I adore you all, takes a good friend to provide pork ideas to a Quaker with a Jewish wife away on a trip. Je te adore.
