Today's recipe is brought to you by my amazing husband. I was home sick yesterday. Sinus infections are my forte really, and yesterday was a doozy. However, I did have the wherewithal to ask PH what he wanted for dinner, and he suggested we get a pork loin out to cook.
As a side note we bought a big freezer a few months back and then we Costco'ed it up and filled it with lots of different meats, veggies, and fruits so we'd be well supplied in case of an apocalypse or something.
Anyway, I got out a pork loin and he stopped by the grocery store on the way home. When he walked in the door he said excitedly, "I have a theme for your blog post this week! Raspberries!" He had gone to the store and bought a raspberry chipotle sauce, a syrup to make a raspberry drink, and raspberries were on sale so he bought those too!
Something you should know about my husband is that he is a master griller. So he cut the pork loin into coin shapes and grilled them. Then he spread the chipotle sauce over it (as you can see here, we used Bronco Bob's Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Sauce) and garnished our plates with raspberries. For the drink he mixed the Torani syrup with seltzer water. Then he got extra fancy and threw some raspberries in his drink as well. He made us a beautiful meal and set a beautiful table. You can go ahead and be jealous, it's okay. Every day I think that everyone should be, because my husband is really the greatest.
Now, this meal was super easy for me because I did absolutely nothing but eat it. It was a quick and simple meal. PH fired up our grill and set it at a temperature of 200 degrees and grill the coins he had sliced for about 20 minutes, and he'd flip them every five minutes for a nice even cook.
Not only was this a simple, quick, and tasty meal, but we have leftovers! Yeah for sandwiches!
Now, I don't know if you know this, but mustard and pork go well together when you're making a sandwich from leftovers. You may also not have known that in the world of mustard, the French are connoisseurs. I mean, it shouldn't surprise you, because it's food related, and France is the food capital of the world. They invented food. Really. They did. Also, there is a town in France called Dijon. You know, like the mustard. So, in the wide world of mustard there are so many options to choose from, and the Maille brand has a wide variety of delicious and fancy mustards. You might think it's weird, but hear me out! Once learn about different types of mustards, your food flavor options will expand exponentially, and who doesn't want that?
You could try this tasty Dijon mustard, or their Old Style Mustard. It would go great on a pork sandwich! The possibilities are endless!
This is really the perfect summer meal because we used a grill and there was fruit. What more does anyone even want in the summer?
