#HiddenValleyIt to make a great meal even better- and prep time easier!
One of the many things I like about a great cut of meat is that it is a blank canvas. Choosing a rub, cooking treatment or marinade is the kind of creativity I like to ‘cultivate’ in the kitchen. Having a well stocked pantry and keeping an eye out for low cost fresh items at the grocery can take a basic dish and kick it up a notch.
You get in a rut certain times of the year when you are really wanting something healthy with a fresh and vibrant taste. I was in that exact mood when I was picking up a few items for dinner. I had 2 pounds of pork tenderloin marinating away in 2 cups of Hidden Valley Ranch Pomegranate Vinaigrette- but I needed something else. Craving both greens and grains I grabbed what I needed for a quick saute.
Making use of pomegranate arils (seeds), I grabbed a package. Not only for color but for the unexpected pop of sweet tart flavor in each bite. Rounding it all out with the cool, creamy taste of goat cheese for a recipe you could find on any elegant fine dining restaurant menu.
From dressings and dips to sandwich spreads and side dishes, the special blend of herbs and spices in Hidden Valley Ranch makes for a delicious twist on all of your favorite recipes. My go-to is using many of their vinaigrette dressings to marinade meats, and several of their classic line dressing choices for hamburgers, meatballs and meatloaf. Lots of options and less hassle than making it all yourself on a busy weeknight.
This pork tenderloin dish can be almost completely prepped while the pork cooks.
I baked it, but you could just as easily grill it or cook it on the stove top. Be sure to keep an eye on it and remove it from heat just as it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Allow the meat to rest for at least 10 minutes before you slice it for serving. I typically allow my meat to marinade for 2 hours, but do what works for you. I would recommend at least an hour though.
I hope you love this marinated pork tenderloin saute!
