In addition to being here, I'm over at Carolyn Schriber's blog, doing a recap of what's happened since I was her guest a year ago.
Now - Happy Anniversary to the Hubster (and me). This is year number 42 for us. And yes, faithful followers of this blog have seen the picture before. I'm in a rut--I post it every year on August 24th.
As for What's Cooking Wednesday - I'm going to see how the feature goes, so keep the feedback coming. And feel free to share one of your own recipes.
Today's recipe is for a grilled pork tenderloin, a favorite dish around our house. Easy to mix up the marinade, and Hubster is generally happy to man the grill.
Sassy Mojo Pork
2 ¾ to 1 lb. Pork tenderloins
2 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, rinsed (can be adjusted for your heat preference)
½ c orange juice
¼ c coarsely chopped onion
2 T snipped oregano (or 2 t dried)
2 T lime juice
1 T honey
1 T cooking oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
½ t salt
Combine peppers, orange juice, onion, oregano, lime juice, honey, oil, garlic & salt in blender or food processor. Process or blend until nearly smooth.
Place meat in plastic bag; pour marinade over. Refrigerate 2 hours (not longer).
Drain meat, discard marinade.
Grill to internal temperature of 160, about 20 minutes. Remove from grill, cover with foil and let stand 10 minutes. Garnish with fresh oregano leaves.
Should anyone be inclined to offer anniversary 'gifts' -- I'd love some more followers, especially readers, and some more clicks on the like button on the sidebar, and tweets, etc., below the post. I'm still trying to figure out what the +1 button does, so give it a try and let me know what happened. Come back tomorrow, and I'll have gifts for you.
