Pork & Polenta

When I was living in Florida I use to dine at a restaurant called Seasons 52 and I religiously ordered the Pork & Polenta dish because I was ADDICTED to the FLAVORS! Here is my easy, tender, succulent pork & polenta at home recreation for you!

Ingredients
Sundried Tomato & Garlic Polenta (pre-cooked polenta)
1/4 tbsp of milk
1/2 Cup of Chicken Broth
Cook on stovetop in a pot whisking until you reach your desired consistency. You may add more liquids if you want it creamier. Then add 1 tbsp of butter and salt & pepper to taste.

Pork
Pork Tenderloin
Create a rub with any spices you choose and put on a plate big enough to lay your tenderloin on to cover all sides with the spice. I used garlic powder, onion powder, salt & Pepper and then covered all sides of the tenderloin. Sear for 2 minutes on each side in a cast iron skillet and finish in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes depending on the temperature (how much pinkness you like) you like your pork. After, removing from the oven allow to sit for 10-15 minutes so the juices can redistribute themselves before slicing.

Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
1 Cup of Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup
2 tbsp of Heavy Cream
2 tbsp of Tomato & Basil Feta
Simmer the above ingredients until heated and cheese is melted. Add more cheese or cream if you like a thicker consistency. Then plate your food by placing polenta onto the plate, add pork and drizzle with roasted red pepper sauce.

Oscar Night Snacks

It’s Oscar Night and here are some quick snacks to to keep you entertained! I made a Candied Bacon, Truffle Popcorn, and Tequila Sangria! Perfect for just you or if you have guest stopping by…

Candied Bacon
Thick Cut Bacon
1 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 tbsp of Red Pepper Flakes
Put your brown sugar and pepper flakes in a pie dish or a deep dish so you can mix it all around and then lay your bacon into the mixture coating each piece of bacon. You can cook your bacon in the oven on 400 12-17 minutes until crispy on a broiler pan or you can cook on the stovetop in a cast iron skillet. It has a nice sweet sticky flavor from the carmalized brown sugar and a tiny kick from the red pepper flakes.

Truffle Butter Popcorn

You can pop with fresh kernels or you can take the shortcut and use the store bought popcorn you pop in the microwave. I used a regular size bag of butter flavored (you can use plain too) and after popping place in a big bowl. Melt 1 tbsp of butter and add 1/4 tsp of truffle oil. Pour over your popcorn and stir it all around. Then add 1/4 cup of crushed parmigiano reggiano and sprinkle with dried parsley. It’s such a tasty treat!

Tequila Sangria
Tequila
Peach Schnapps
Red Wine (fresh & fruity)
Pineapple Juice
Orange Juice
Simple Syrup (equal parts sugar & water melted)
Fresh Blackberries & Pineapple
In a shaker add 2oz or 4 tbsp of tequila. Add 2 tbsp of peach schnapps, simple syrup, and pineapple juice. Add a splash of orange juice and shake well. Pour over ice, pour red wine on top and garnish with blackberries and pineapple. DELICIO-SO!
Hope everyone enjoys the Oscar’s!
