Pork Tenderloin With Peaches
Despite that the past few days and the whole March in general were quite cold, we had an amazing, full of fun little events weekend.
My kid’s cousin live in NYC. So when she and her parents stopped by our place on Saturday, my little ones couldn’t be more excited. Needless to say, the kids room turned into a mess. But that’s what childhood is all about, right? Playing with your friends, having fun and not thinking about minor chaos around you. I love watching kids play with each other and observing how they shape into these cute little individuals with their own points of view and thoughts.
Aside from our fun-filled weekends, week days are always busy. I’m slowly getting back into my usual routine of cooking, cleaning and taking care of the kids while my husband is at work. When my parents stayed here, they were of a huge help and gave me a little break from cooking. It was really nice, but I think, after 5 years of being a mom myself, I became pretty good at keeping my house organized and under control even without help.
My mom knows I don’t eat pork very often. I usually prefer chicken recipe and my Mustard Chicken is one of my family’s favorite. But sometimes my husband specifically asks me to prepare pork tenderloin. My favorite true and tried method has always been to marinate pork in a mixture of spices and then bake it wrapped in foil. So delicious!
When my mom was in charge of preparing food, she decided to introduce me to the new pork recipe and made a tasty Pork Tenderloin With Peaches.
The day she was making it, I was busy shooting another recipe. But when she told me that Pork Tenderloin With Peach Sauce is ready to be photographed, I was quite surprised. I didn’t expect the dish to be finished that fast, which makes it a perfect recipe for busy weekdays.
The secret to a juicy and most delicious pork tenderloin ever is a simple marinade made of cilantro, garlic and soy sauce. You can marinate the pork overnight but two hours will be enough as well. The rest of the steps can be done in under 30 minutes. Sounds good, right?
I usually love serving pork dishes with potatoes, like these Delicious Hasselaback Potatoes and a simple salad. But a simple steamed rice would be a great addition to this recipe too.
