Southern Style Pork Tenderloin

Today's recipe is courtesy of Louisville’s own Catherine McCord of weelicious.
(Serves 6)
Prep Time: 10 minutes.  Cook Time: 15 minutes.  Total Time: 25 minutes.
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 whole pork tenderloins, approximately 2 pounds total, trimmed
Preparation
  1. Place the first six ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Pour into a large zipper bag or glass container large enough to hold the pork tenderloins and marinate overnight or up to 2 days.
  2. Preheat a grill to high heat, and oil the grates.
  3. Remove tenderloins from the bag, reserving the marinade, and grill for 14-15 minutes, turning halfway through or until the internal temperature is 140°F. Remove from heat and set meat aside to rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the juices to rest and redistribute.
  4. While the meat is resting, place the marinade in a small pan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Slice the tenderloin on a bias and serve with the sauce if desired.

Are They are Too Young?


Are we enablers when it comes to our kids growing up too fast?

I think we are, to some degree, if we answer answer, “yes” to any of the following questions:

Does your child who is under the age of 13 have his/her own facebook page?
If he/she does, then someone else set it up for them, or they did it on their own using a false birthday.  Is your child really fully capable of dealing with the repercussions of things they might post online?

Do you buy video games that are rated beyond what your child’s age is?
You probably don’t condone violence and would never hand your child a weapon; yet, we are quick to purchase video games for them where they are forever shooting “bad guys.”

Do you allow your child to see movies with ratings suited for an older audience?
There’s a good chance your family never even utters the "s-e-x" word in your house, but you think nothing of it when your child hears jokes or innuendo in a PG or PG-13 movie… right?  They probably didn't understand the what the characters were talking about anyways.

Do you allow your child to read books that have themes suited for an older audience?
It’s just a book.  It’s not real.  My child won’t have frightening dreams about those kids fighting one another tonight.

There are reasons those entertainment outlets have been given ratings and specific age suggestions.  Today’s youth is our future.  What will our future look like at this rate?  It’s just a thought…

What are your thoughts about this?

Button Up


Got buttons? I do! Too many of ‘em…forgotten leftovers of garments tossed long ago. But the character of these survivor buttons beckoned to me for a redefined purpose and new life. I have found a craft* to recycle them and also teach my granddaughter sewing skills.
