Tantalize your taste buds and make my quick and easy recipe for Pan Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Peppers for dinner tonight!
Looking for a quick summer dinner that won’t leave you with piles of dishes in your kitchen sink? Try this recipe for Pan Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Peppers. I don’t know about you, but after dinner we like to do stuff as a family. It’s the only hour or so that we get each day as a family. So, the last thing I want is to be stuck doing dishes during that hour of family time. Many nights if the sink is piled with dishes I wait until my son goes to bed to do them because I would rather spend that family time together. Some nights we will swim after dinner, other nights we will go fishing or walk our local golf course.
On Tuesday, I shared my recipe for creamy cheesy corn grits. That is what I paired with this recipe for Pan Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Peppers. I love making pork tenderloins and this version definitely has a summery twist to it!
You’ll make this entire meal in the skillet. First, you’ll cook the pork tenderloin both using the stove top and the oven. Now, normally I’m not one to turn on the oven during the summer months; however, this recipe is worth it. If you really really insist in not turning on the oven you could cook this entire meal on the stove top but you won’t get the oven roasted taste! Once your pork is done, you’ll place it on a cutting board and let it rest. Then, you’ll make the pan gravy. Just a few simple ingredients and you have yourself a flavorful pork pan gravy. You’ll also pour the gravy into a bowl and set that to the side too. Lastly, comes the bell peppers. The original recipe called for anchovies. I couldn’t find my anchovy paste and would have liked to incorporate it into the peppers; however the way I cooked the peppers they still tasted delicious. My family loved this recipe for Pan Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Peppers and I think your family will love it too!
