Oh Micheal Symon how you inspired me today. I purchased a pork tenderloin the other day not really knowing what I was going do with it. Maybe pork and sauerkraut. Then while breaking for lunch I watched The Chew and what do I see? Michael Symon was given the challenge to cook a meal out of a grab bag of ingredients. Pork Tenderloin was the protein. Perfect. Here is The Chew version of what Micheal created.
A quick trip to the store for brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes. I had the remaining ingredients needed. And although I didn’t follow exactly Chef Symon’s recipe, I was very pleased with the results. I cooked my pork whole and wrapped in bacon and seared in a cast iron dutch oven. My family is not to fond of Thyme so just a pinch. I did add garlic in the pot with the pork.
I was never a big brussel sprouts fan so I cooked them after removing the sweet potato / apple mix from a cast iron skillet. I am trying to add ginger to my diet so a sprinkle of ginger seemed like it would be a good addition and it was! I actually liked the brussel sprouts. Will definitively make them again this way.
