However, the other night, I finally broke out of my no-cooking, just-throw-something-together mode and made an actual recipe. These are so yummy, and amazingly quick and easy. Start to finish, they took me maybe 15 minutes. Now that's what I'm talking about!
Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Mustard Sauce
1 pound thin-sliced pork chops (or, use the thicker kind and pound them down a bit)
salt and fresh-ground black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2-3 green onions, sliced
Heat oil in large skillet over med-high heat. Season pork on both sides with salt and pepper and place in hot oil. Cook on each side for 2 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Remove from skillet; set aside and keep warm.
Reduce heat to low. Add evaporated milk and stir to looked brown bits from bottom of skillet. Stir in mustard and green onions and cook, stirring frequently, for a few minutes. Return pork to skillet and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until sauce is slightly thickened, turning pork to coat with sauce. Serve pork chops with sauce spooned over the top.
Makes approx. 4 servings.
And for dinner tonight? Well, tonight, I don't have to cook! My honey and I are going on a date (let's hear a resounding YAY!!!). Caitlyn, always a sweetie, is coming over to watch the girls, and Jeremy and I are eating at this place and then seeing this movie. I'm so excited for date night that I may just burst into lots of happy little pieces!
