Absolutely delicious dinner – entirely my Heart’s design and packed with great flavor.
Peeled and sliced red pears.
Two pork tenderloin.
Deep slits were cut into each tenderloin then they were filled with slices of pears and slivered almonds…
and a sprinkling of craisins
Tied (if you don’t have string and/or don’t use it often – you can ask your grocery store meat butcher for some, they usually will give you a length) and then a bit of Bas Armagnac, which is a form of cognac.
And some freshly ground pepper
Whole head of cauliflower, cleaned and boiled whole
Crackers and chopped pecans & almonds were cooked in a bunch of butter until brown
Cooked for 400-degrees for 1 hour until core temperature reached 160-degrees
Perfect – juicy and delicious
The cooked cracker & nuts mixture was poured over the cauliflower
Perfectly wonderful plate – cauliflower with crunchy bits, pork bites with pear, nuts, & cranberries, and mashed potatoes with pork gravy – YUM !
Dessert: amaretti cookies drizzled with Lemoncello served with lemon sorbet and with a shot of lemon vodka for everyone on the side! Love the way my Heart concocts!
