I feel that I must share something…it’s kind of a secret. Just promise me you won’t judge.
I’m not a very good cook. It’s true. My cooking is safe. Boring really. If I could plan a menu without using cookbooks, online cheat recipes, my nightly meals would consist of spaghetti, chicken parm, turkey sandwiches, and probably a frozen pizza.
For this reason alone, I started this blog. Okay, I started it as a joke…because I couldn’t cook. But this blog has forced me to step out of my comfort zone and cook and bake things I normally wouldn’t.
I know what you’re thinking…pork tenderloin is easy. Well, about 6 months ago, I would have been scared to pick up one at the store. Really. But now, I’m a little bit braver when it comes to my kitchen skills. I may not succeed, but I’ll sure as hell try.
Grilled pork tenderloin adapted* from she wears many hats.
1lb pork tenderloin
*The marinade is adapted as I just kind of threw some ingredients in a bowl together.
If you want to make it easy, pick up a nice marinade from the store (honey teriyaki, etc…) I used a concoction of brown sugar, ground ginger, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, worcestershire sauce (I was out of soy sauce), honey, salt and pepper. It was a little on the sweet side, but it was tasty.
See what you’ve got in your pantry and have at it.
Just remember, you don’t have to be on Top Chef to be a cook.
Be brave. And always, always enjoy yourself.
*ps. the pictures in the click throughs are well, bad. remember that whole thing i said about not judging?
