I Blogstalked “Barrister Bites” for this delicious recipe:
My friend Barrister Bites routinely offers up great, healthy recipes that are not only good but also easy to prepare. I happen to know she has a punishing commuter schedule so how she manages to knock out a steady stream of winners every night I just don’t know. Seriously. Every night.
They must not eat leftovers over there. She manages to shave a few calories off just about everything she makes! With this one she even managed to shave a few off even though it was originally a recipe from Eating Well…and STILL she adapted it by sub’ing in some Smart Start Lite or something like that. (Do you buy that at the hardware store?)
My version corrects for this this calorie saving overkill and adds a hint of tarragon to the mix — I love tarragon when white wine is added for reductions. Leave it out, however, if it’s not your thing.
I’ve also adapted this recipe for the tenderloin which I prefer to the actual pork loin as it is, um, more tender. Oh, and it also takes flavor better and cooks a lot faster.
Unfortunately, what you see here isn’t really a tenderloin at all but rather it is our market’s (Albertsons) idea of a joke. He took a regular center cut pork loin and cut down its length so it would be in two long pieces. Do people really get fooled by that? Remind me never to buy meat there again.
(It was still good!)
