Weeknight Dinner: Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Corn & Green Beans

I make this pork all of the time. The marinade tenderizes the meat and gives it this great tangy flavor. You can serve it with any sides you like, but the corn is looking really good at the market and green beans are always a hit with the kids. This pork is great for company too, so add it in to the men for your next BBQ. 

Honey Mustard Grilled Pork Tenderloin
serves 4-6

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
a few chopped herbs if you have them. Like Rosemary or Thyme 
2 lbs pork tenderloin

In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together all the ingredients expect the pork. Add in some salt and pepper. Place the pork in a plastic bag, pour marinade over, seal bag, then massage into the meat. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before cooking and up to the morning of. 

Heat grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Grill pork on all sides for about 3 minutes each, depending on thickness. 15-20 minutes should be all you need. You want the meat to feel a bit firm, but not too much. Pull meat off grill and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. 

Classic Green Beans
make as much as you want

Enough green beans to feed your crowd
olive oil
garlic, smashed or sliced

Trim green beans and keep whole or cut into pieces. Place in a pot and cover with just enough water to cover. Add a good slug of olive oil, salt, and the garlic. Place the pot on the stove over high heat. once boiling, turn heat down to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes. Green beans should be just tender. Drain well and return back to the pot. Toss with a bit of butter and season with salt and pepper. 

2 Minute Corn on Cob
make as much as you want

Get as much corn as you need, shuck and clean it. Wrap each cob with plastic wrap and place in the microwave. Cook on high for 1 minute. Check if done. Corn will be tender and turn a bright yellow when it is done cooking. If not there yet, add 30 seconds and repeat until done. So easy right?

  1. In the mean time, in a dish blend together flour and harsh cream. Blend in milk. Mix harsh cream blend and cheddar into depleted vegetables. (Blend may seem coagulated till cheddar is mixed). Mix and cook till bubbly and thickened. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/06/corn-and-lima-beans-dish.html
