Thai Quivering Tenderloins

"This Thai-inspired dish is simple enough to cook for a weeknight, yet elegant enough to serve for a dinner party."

Original Recipe Yield 6 servings

1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
2 (1 pound) pork tenderloins
1/2 cup chicken stock


Whisk together the orange juice, soy sauce, hot pepper sauce, cilantro, garlic, brown sugar, peanut butter, and ginger root in a bowl. Lie the tenderloins in a glass baking dish; pour the orange juice mixture over the tenderloins. Marinate in refrigerator at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours or overnight.

Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Transfer the tenderloins to the foil-lined baking sheet, reserving the marinade.

Cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, 30 to 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

While the pork cooks, combine the reserve marinade and chicken stock in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Allow to boil 2 minutes; reduce heat to low and simmer 5 to 7 minutes.

Cut the tenderloins into 1/4-inch slices; spoon the sauce over the sliced pork to serve.

This should make you smile. You have to love little kids.

The teacher passed out Lifesavers in class one day.

The children began to identify the flavors by their color:



Orange ..............Orange

Finally the teacher gave them all HONEY lifesavers. None of the children could identify the taste.

The teacher said, 'I will give you all a clue. It's what your mother may sometimes call your father.'

One little girl looked up in horror, spit her lifesaver out and yelled, 'Oh my God! They're a**-holes!

The teacher had to leave the room!

2 CL chairs reupholstered. DONE! Pics

posted by: nicole__ on 03.25.2010 at 09:17 pm in Home Decorating Forum

These are the 2 CL chairs I acquired. The one was free, the other $5. The plaid fabric was enough for one, but to stretch it to cover two a poster here suggested I use the black diamond with cream dots fabric. I did! They were easy enough to do, but I am a little clumsy and had a cold....which slowed me down considerably. :0) The cost for both chairs $30! (The plaid fabric was $1yd, dotted fabric $7)Med pic(med)Striped &amp; ready to upholsterPhotobucketPhotobucket
