Well, shiver me tenderloin.
Can you believe summer starts in like 25 seconds? You know what this means, don't you? You know what you have to do, right? You know what has to happen, I'm sure? You know where I'm going with this, yes? Just get to it, for the love, before you break your hand punching something?
GRILL YOUR FACE OFF. Come on baby light that FIY-YA. The blaze of glory! And it BURNS BURNS BURN, the ring of fire! Burn it up! Grill, baby, grill!AND I can chill.
Basically, I have this rad to the bone chipotle marinade that you need to try before any more time passes. It's HOT, but it's not going to melt your head off because a lot of the heat grills away. I'm not sure what that means, BUT it's unbelievably dulishush and you can use it on pork, chicken, steak, even shrimp! But not your face. You can put egg whites on your face, but not this marinade.
Let me show ya!
So you grab some canned chipotle peppers, brown sugar, ketchup, lime juice, a good pork tenderloin, and some taters.
And all you do is combine the peppers, their adobo sauce, the sugar, ketchup and lime juice in a small food processor. Ba-litz-a-roo until smooth.
Then you'll pour the marinade over the tenderloin in the bowl or plastic baggy that you can seal. I will SAY this was enough marinade for two tenderloins, so feel free to freeze half of it for later use. Thank you very much.
Throw in the fridge for a few hours, or overnight or whatever you have time for.
All I did with the potatoes was dice them up, like so...
And you'll grill that meat on an indoor or outdoor grill for abooooout 45 minutes. Rotate the meat so you get good grill marks all over. It smells so good right now.
Back to the taters! Just sauté them in a little oil with salt and pepper until they're crispy on the outside and soft inside, about 20 minutes.
You'll let the meat rest for a smidge, and then you serrrrrve. Mmmmm.
Oh my stars, the taste. Look at that color. Those grill marks. You can either slice it up (which I forgot to photograph because I'd passed out just looking at it) or shove the entire thing right into your mouth. You know what you want to do.If you do decide to put egg whites on your face, whip them up first and apply as a mask. For more musings, visit her blog at Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
