Dinner for two…kinda.

So, J got a new job, which is awesome. However, the hours are opposite of mine. Therefore, he gets all of the food I make 12 hours or more later than I cook them…Tonight’s menu? Sweet and spicy pork tenderloin with mango salsa and cilantro lime rice. Photo on 2-5-13 at 6.46 PM

Seriously. How good does that look?

For meat:

*pork tenderloin

*garlic salt


*red chili sauce

*sriracha  (very little amount)


1. Roast tenderloin at 375 with garlic salt and ginger (40-45 minutes).

2. Mix together the last three ingredients (you make it as spicy as you want), and pour over pork. Roast 10ish more minutes.

For salsa:

*mango, diced


*lime juice

*clove of garlic

*jalapeno, seeded and minced (only a small amount)

3. Mix together in a bowl and refrigerate until dinner.

For rice:

*minute brown rice

*some olive oil


*lime juice


4. Cook rice according to package.

5. Mix oil, cilantro, lime juice and salt.

….Umm, eat.


So good! Let’s hope J likes it when he comes home!
