- bag of arugula (or salad greens of your choice)
- package of baby beets
- pork tenderloin
- stuff for dressing (balsamic vinegar, olive oil, generous hunk of goat cheese)
Step one - Dump salad into large bowl.
(No. No, I take that back. Step one should probably be to turn on the broiler. Get that sucker going. Then dump the salad into a bowl.)
Step two - Thinly slice beets. Add to salad.
Step three - Make the dressing. Put a big dollop of goat cheese in a measuring cup. Add enough vinegar to cover, and about half that volume of olive oil. (I also drizzled a bit of hazelnut oil into the mix.) Mash and stir with a fork until the goat cheese is all nicely incorporated.
Step four - Pour dressing over salad. Stir til everything's coated. Set aside.
Step five - Put the pork in a pan. Cut the lemon in half. Squeeze half the lemon over the pork, then sprinkle with salt & pepper. Flip the tenderloin and do the same thing on the other side.
Step six - Put the pork under the broiler for five minutes. Flip. Cook for five more minutes. Turn it on its side. Give it another 3 minutes. Pull it out of the oven. Let it rest for just a couple of minutes, slice, and serve over the top of the salad. Done!
I think I whipped this up in about 20 minutes tonight. Not bad! And it's quite tasty. Huzzah!
