Marinated Pork Tenderloin Chinese Style

moon and pork 005

I have no clue what’s going on with this recipe, but this is the second time I have wanted to put it in! The first time, I come to find out that husband didn’t get any pictures of it and it got devoured in just two days; today my computer is giving me fits as we have a weak connection with our internet making typing a pain in the you know what…. Bah Humbug

Now as I said, this is my second stab at entering this tenderloin delight and after tasting it the first time, all I wanted to do was to make some homemade egg rolls with the leftovers or even maybe some stir-fried rice as the flavor was just so perfect for either recipe.

But no, not to be and so it was off to the kitchen to bake off another one so I did it shortly after the first one hoping everyone would be tired of it and wouldn’t gobble it down on me! So on Monday with enough left, maybe I can actually whip up a batch of egg rolls, all I can do is pray and make sure no one finds out where I stashed it in our frig, ha ha!

Kenny STILL had to have a dash of vinegar...

Kenny STILL had to have a dash of vinegar…

With the cold that came all the way down to Florida this past weekend, it was the perfect time for me to get busy in the kitchen making a dish that would warm our tummies and sooth our souls. I know a lot of you up north had it down right freezing compared to us but when we don’t get out of the 40’s during the day time, no sun and have old man winter blowing those cold temps out of the north, it’s down right freezing to us here in the south! I even got to see a few SNOW flakes fluttering in the air on Saturday morn, WOW, I was a happy, happy camper!

I had a few plans for Saturday that went by the wayside as all we wanted to do was get the fireplace cranked up and enjoy what I hypothetically called a “SNOW DAY” for us retired fogies, just relaxing, snuggled up on the couch and watching movies.

I had seen a recipe similar to this by Chef Curtis who represents our Winn Dixie grocery stores and with a few alternate ingredients, it served us up something tasty and was a perfect compliment for the cold weather along with some homemade cornbread!
