I was looking through my cabinets and trying to figure out what I could make for dinner that was easy and healthy. Guess what? This is not only delicious but you probably have the ingredients in your fridge and pantry.
I bought a pork tenderloin, put it in a sauce pan with some veggies and seasonings on simmer until the pork was ready. Then used two forks to shred. Serve with rice or put in a roll and you got a meal right there. We ate it with two different Chinese greens sautéed in garlic and were stuffed.
All measurements are approximate (adjust to your liking)
500 g (1 lb) pork tenderloin
1 large sized onion, sliced
1 carrot, sliced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
chopped fresh ginger (use as much or as little as you want, I used a crazy amount)
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1 T sesame oil
1 T of honey
2-3 T of apple cider vinegar
Put the entire pork tenderloin into a heavy bottomed saucepan with the sliced veggies and minced garlic/ginger on top.
Mix the soy sauce, sesame oil, honey and apple cider vinegar together in a separate bowl, then pour on top of the pork. Simmer on low heat till the pork is done, shred with two forks and enjoy!
This reminds me a little of adobo and it’s so delicious. I imagine this would also taste good with beef or chicken instead, well… chicken especially because I’ve made that before. Serve with rice and some veggies and you have a wholesome meal! Garnish with some sesame seeds but definitely not necessary. You could add potatoes and other veggies but it will take longer to cook. That may also require a bit more seasoning as well.
What are some of your easy to cook recipes? I’m looking for new things to cook. I’m in a rut.
