I recently spilled the beans about my ambivalence over turkey; it's my least favorite part of the holiday meal. But I'm not alone: more than a quarter of you admitted to being undecided about the big bird. To all of you naysayers out there, I suggest you make another roast instead. Don't even worry about it being something pricey, like crown roast of lamb or beef fillet — simply make pork tenderloin. With its cranberry sauce and sweet potato side, this foolproof recipe, which comes courtesy of Ming Tsai's latest book, tastes just like Thanksgiving, no turkey required. Want the recipe?

I'm never happier than when I discover a good sale at the meat counter, and on a really generous week, my grocer offers two-for-one deals on a healthy and quick-cooking cut, pork tenderloin. I'll buy two, but diversify my plate by making a hearty pork, apple, and squash meal one night, then digging in to a completely different pork meal the following evening. Tonight, utilize leftover pork by oven-roasting it with a light seasoning, all the while quick-sautéing brussels sprouts, almonds, and apricots until wilted and caramelized. If you prefer extra flavor, dry-rub the pork spices and herbs like cumin, paprika, dried sage, and oregano. Get the recipe now.
Whether you've been eagerly awaiting golden leaves or you're still in denial that Summer's over, there's one easy to way to embrace Fall: by cooking your family a healthy, yet hearty meal that brings together all the flavors of the season. Pork tenderloin tastes great straight off the grill, but it's even more wonderful in Autumn applications. Here, marinate pork with garlic, sage, and seasonings.
Bake and serve with prepped, in season butternut squash and cooking apples like Golden Delicious and Gravenstein varieties that have been oven-roasted with butter, onions, and honey mustard. Your plate will look — and taste — as colorful as the changing leaves around you. For the recipe, read on.
You already know I have been testing out savory berry recipes — like pulled pork with blackberries — all Summer long, and I've come to the conclusion that you can’t go wrong with pork and a fruity sauce. They seem to nearly always be a match made in heaven. I couldn't resist trying another simple, seasonal BBQ recipe of pork tenderloin with a spicy blackberry glaze. Although the original recipe called for blackberry jam, I decided to make a quick jam with fresh blackberries and used this as the base of the sauce. When I tasted the finished sauce alone (as any good cook would do), I thought it was a touch too vinegary, but once paired with the pork, it was simply perfect. If you are tired of hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, spice it up with this recipe.
Recently, I threw a cherry-themed dinner party, where I highlighted nature's jewel-toned stone fruit. In addition to making cherry pan dowdies, my pièce de résistance was a pork tenderloin that had been butterflied, pounded, stuffed, sliced, and served as a beautiful roulade. The recipe looks lengthy, but don't be deterred by it; you can shave time off by asking your butcher to do the trimming, cutting, and pounding of the pork tenderloin. On top of being pretty to look at, the flavor combinations of this dish — juicy, sweet, fruity, meaty, salty — are spectacular. Serve it on a large platter with asparagus or on top of a bed of sautéed greens. To impress guests at a Summer dinner party, read more.
When it comes to affordable and easy entertaining, I'm a huge fan of the other white meat: pork tenderloin. It comes in packs of two that are usually sold for under $10. It's also a quick-cooking and versatile cut of meat that can be seasoned with just about anything.
Recently I made grilled pork tenderloin with a rosemary coating and red pepper sauce. The tender pork was so juicy and flavorful that some of my guests thought the sauce was unnecessary! It's an elegant but unfussy preparation that's perfect for a Summer dinner party. Want to enjoy it? Here's the recipe.
"The Sentinel has a sandwich with figs on it today!" a coworker alerted me on Tuesday morning. I love figs, and I love sandwiches, so I hightailed it over to the SF sandwich shop founded by local chef Dennis Leary.
This was my third time trying The Sentinel's expensive sandwiches, and though this was my favorite so far, I was still somewhat disappointed. Why? Because I expect a place whose menu changes seasonally to use seasonal ingredients, like figs, but this sandwich was sweetened with fig spread. The menu promised fresh figs! But now for the good news.
It's a week into June, but judging by the number of San Franciscans huddled up in coats, you'd never have known it. Since it was too cold to be grilling and chilling outside, I opted for another meat-centric meal inspired by the fiery flavors of Southwestern cuisine.
This recipe calls for baby carrots and red jalapeños, but I didn't want to waste any of the resources I already had on hand, so I used conventional carrots and green jalapeños instead. Whatever ingredients you use, the end result is full of complex flavors. To make this for dinner, read more
