I stole this particular recipe from Martha Stewart and I’m glad I did because it turned out really really good and the added bonus is that it is a “one pot” meal which of course simplifies cleanup.

Here’s how we do this one.

Shopping list:

  • 1 pound Pork Tenderloin – cut thin
  • Plums cut into wedges
  • 1 medium Red onion – sliced
  • 2 Green onions – chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1/4 Red Wine Vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Granulated Garlic
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Parsley for garnish

Putting it all together:

  1. Heat the oil in a saute pan.
  2. While the oil is heating season the pork with the salt, pepper and garlic.
  3. Fry the pork, in batches, until just tender. About five minutes. Remove and set aside.
  4. In the same pan saute the onions and plums until just tender about 5 minutes. Add the vinegar and continue cooking for about an other 5 minutes.
  5. Add back the pork and toss well, garnish with the parsley and enjoy.

There you have it “another simple but tasty recipe for the grilling season and beyond.”

Until next time……..

I used to have a Bravetti™ Deep Fryer, you know the kind…. took four liters of oil to fill it then it took forever to heat up and depending on what you were making it could be hit and miss on the doneness. The other pain was the clean up….. It was a mess to drain because you had to filter the oil into a container without spilling oil all over the kitchen, store the filtered oil somewhere and then clean the appliance without damaging the heating elements and not to mention the fact it was a big appliance and took up a bunch of counter space.

Well I finally got tired of the Bravetti™ and after cleaning it up I donated it to Value Village and then went on the hunt for a replacement.  I am happy to say that the Actifry™ is head and shoulders above what I used to have. Not only is it a healthier alternative as it uses 2 Tablespoons of oil and HOT AIR but once you close the lid and set the timer it is instant start and the timer goes off when your food is done. The clean up is a snap as all the parts come apart very easily and soap and water is all I have ever needed. I have used this machine for French Fies, Chicken Fingers and Shrimp with great success and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Oh and…. it fits in the corner of my counter thereby leaving me work space.

So if you are looking for a deep fryer I would highly recommend giving this one a whirl…. you won’t regret it.

Until next time……..
