Seared Pork Tenderloin with Apples and Broccoli Recipe



1 apple bourbon pork tenderloin, trimmed of fat and sliced into 1-inch pieces
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
 2 tsp ground coriander
2 Tbs. butter
2 apples (I think mine were gala?), thinly sliced
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
1/4 cup apple cider
2 heads broccoli, florets separated
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 small sprig of fresh thyme


In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon, nutmeg, ground coriander and a pinch of salt and pepper. Sprinkle both sides of the sliced pork with the spice mixture.

Heat a cast iron (or large skillet) over medium high. Sear the pork for about 3 minutes on each side, until cooked through and browned all over. Remove from pan and cover to keep warm.

Back in the pan, add the butter and melt. Add the shallots and sauté until they start to soften, 2 minutes. Add the apples and broccoli to the pan, continuing to sauté until another 2 minutes. Add the apple cider and sauté two more minutes, or until everything is so glorious you need to rest. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Nestle the pork back in (with the accumulating juices) and cook about a minute longer, incorporating the flavors.

Serve dish garnished with fresh thyme leaves!

Brussels Sprout and Chorizo Beer Hash Recipe by Food 52


Brussels Sprout and Chorizo Beer Hash

  • 1pound Brussels sprouts (outside leaves removed)
  • 3Chorizo links, outer casing removed and crumbled (can also use dried)
  • 1cup beer (I used Great Lakes Dortmunder)
  • 4Large eggs
  • 4Medium blue or red potatoes, halved
  • 1Shallot, diced
  • 3Cloves garlic, minced
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Bring 2 medium pots of salted water to a boil. Toss your whole Brussels sprouts into one for 5 minutes. Toss your potatoes into the other for 10. Drain both.
  2. In a large sauté pan with high sides, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add chorizo and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and shallots and cook for 3 minutes. Add a bit of salt and pepper.
  3. Trim the bottom of the Brussels sprouts and cut in half. Add your Brussels sprouts to the pan with the chorizo and cook for about 7 minutes, until they have started to brown. Note that the bottom of your pan will start to build a bit of a crust. Worry not: you will de-glaze it with the beer shortly.
  4. Peel the skin off the potatoes, and cut into 1 inch cubes. Toss into the pan after the brussels sprouts have browned. Add a little more salt and pepper to the dish. De-glaze the bottom of the pan with the beer. Let the potatoes cook for about 5 minutes, until they start to brown a little bit. Add more beer if necessary to make sure you get all the flavors off the bottom of the pan.
  5. Cook your eggs in butter with a dash of salt in a separate pan, for about 2-3 minutes, just until the egg white is no longer runny, but the yolk still is. 
  6. Serve the egg over the hash while both are still piping hot! Enjoy.

Taco Tuesdays – Happy National Taco Day!!! – What’s your favorite Taco Recipe?


plate with taco

It’s National Taco Day! A taco is a traditional Mexican dish made with chicken, beef, vegetables, or seafood. The filling is folded inside a soft or hard tortilla and garnished with toppings such as cheese, salsa, or guacamole.

In 1520, the conquistador Hernando Cortez wrote to King Charles V of Spain to describe his experiences in the New World. In his letter he mentioned a delicious meal the Aztec inhabitants prepared with “tlaxcalli” or “tortilla.” It is the first historical reference to tacos!

Mashed Potato, Cheddar and Chive Waffles




4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup buttermilk

2 large eggs

2 cups mashed potatoes

3 tablespoons chopped chives

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup grated cheddar cheese


Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.  As the butter melts it will begin to crackle and pop.  That’s the water evaporating out of the butter.  Continue to cook the butter until the crackling subsides and the butter begins to brown a bit.  The butter will smell nutty.  Immediately transfer the browned butter into a medium bowl. Whisk in buttermilk and eggs until thoroughly combined.  Add the mashed potatoes and 2 tablespoons chives and gently stir to combine.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.  Use a spoon to mix until all of the flour is thoroughly combined.  Try not to overmix the batter.  Just stir it until the flour is combined.

Heat a waffle iron and grease if necessary.

Dollop batter (about 1/4 cup per waffle) into the waffle iron.  Cook until golden on each side.  The amount of time depends on your waffle iron.  Remove waffles from  the iron and place on a cooling rack to rest.  The cooling rack will keep the waffles from getting soggy on the bottom as they cool.

Just before serving the waffles, turn oven to the broiler setting.  Place waffles on a baking sheet and top with cheddar cheese.  Place waffles under the broiler until cheese is melted, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.  Remove from the oven, sprinkle with remaining chives and serve warm (with salsa is delicious!).
