Pomegranate Glazed Pork Tenderloin
This evening I made pomegranate glazed pork tenderloin - I was feeling a little guilty about not making hubby a grand dinner for his birthday. We did go out to dinner, but somehow it wasn't the same - for me! This pomegranate dish sounds exotic (to me anyway), it really isn't. All I did was coat the tenderloin with about 3 tablespoons of pomegranate jam! It was was melt in your mouth delicious, flavorful, juicy and tender! This would also be great brushed on a crown pork roast (which I happen to love) and served for Christmas dinner!
Along with the pork I served a roasted veggie medley of cauliflower, asparagus, and carrots. I roasted everything at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Here are the roasted veggies, (the photo didn't come out that well) they were tossed with a little bit of olive oil, a pinch of sea salt and fresh ground pepper, then roasted for about 30 minutes. They were just delicious!
For dessert we ate cake and drank tea! I ordered a cake from my favorite baker, Creative Cakes by Debby. It was a white almond cake with butter cream frosting - again, delicious! All in all we had a lovely dinner and I feel vindicated!
