Stuffed pork tenderloin.....

Poor Robin, she has been eating leftovers and quick fix( read: frozen chicken wings) things while I was gone this weekend. She was very ready for some home cooking. I told her I was making dinner last night and she was very excited.

I had a package of pork tenderloin in the freezer and I decided to stuff them with a mixture of goat cheese and spinach( frozen). I added some fresh oregano and lemon zest to the filling. I made up a glaze of red wine( I freeze leftover wine and it works perfectly), red current jelly, fresh mint and black pepper. I grilled this with a foil packet of hickory chips. I grilled it on the flame side to get a nice char and then moved it off the heat for indirect cooking. For the potatoes, I microwaved them halfway, then sliced them and wrapped them in foil with some evoo and smoked paprika.

I had some great meals in Ann Arbor, but it was nice to have some home cooking( even if it was my cooking).

Wow, that looks amazing. I might have to try that soon. It's been great to cook again. It's finally cook enough that I can stand to have my stove on (though I'm sitting outside right now b/c my kitchen got a BIT too warm).

LOL! I made grilled pork tenderloin last night too.

I don't like goat cheese but that still looks really good.
