Culinary Q

Q as in "cue" as in "to prompt." A recipe is only the beginning…

Quick Dinner NOT the usual pork and beans!

Do you want a meal in just about an hour start to finish? Here are the links. If you are like me, you wait until the pork tenderloin is on sale.

I bought what DeMoula’s/Market Basket calls a “mini sirloin roast” last week with the intention of trying it as a substitute for the tenderloin in this recipe, but ended up making this:

Braised Pork Chops with Sage

It was very yummy – luckily I have a lovely sage plant that wintered over. My Rosemary and Oregano did, too. Now I have to set myself up with year-round thyme and basil!

Anyway – the following recipes will give you a lovely meal in the proverbial “just about an hour
from start to eating.
Pork Tenderloin Medallions With Spicy Marmalade Sauce

Sesame Green Beans

And, I tried out mung bean threads – for the first time! Very unexpected texture – I need to learn more about how to use them. I would recommend vermicelli (rice sticks) instead for a quick carb accompaniment if, like me, you don’t get basmati brown rice on the stove at the very beginning!
