Currently this is our new favorite recipe for many reasons: it is EASY, good/fancy-seeming enough to impress company, and the kids love it. I have made it exactly as the recipe calls for (including the Newman's Own dressing), and have added more Sriracha. Not everyone is a fan of the added kick, but it works for us.
My husband stopped talking in superlatives a long time ago. This dish, prepared exactly according to the recipe was, in his opinion outstanding. It wasn't as spicy as I thought it would be until I reheated the left-overs. Even though cooked, it continued to marinate and got very hot. A bit too hot for him, but perfect for me. Definitely company fare. Next time, I will up the amount of hot sauce a bit if I know I won't have left-overs.
This was a good, quick meal. I was really glad to find a recipe that used Napa in something other than a slaw (good as those are). I did use sweet chili sauce instead of the hot so my kids would eat it, so next time I will cut back on the brown sugar. I also added a lot more veggies to the salad to expand it out (my tenderloin was a little on the small side), but the addition of cucumber, cherry tomatoes, mandarin oranges & sliced almonds made it feel more like a dinner salad.
This was quick, easy, and delicious. DH forgot to get spinach so I substituted some iceberg lettuce mix along with the cabbage and added some sliced green onion and chopped cilantro on top. The pork was really good. I think I'll cut it up a bit more next time to make bite-sized pieces and then just reduce the cooking time accordingly.
I cooked the pork tenderloin in the oven whole, as opposed to on the stove top in slices. It was delicious. My BF likes my cooking, but I don't think he's ever raved about a dish as much as this one. I cooked it with some Feta mashed potatoes and the spinach salad in the recipe. The only thing I changed about the pork seasoning was that I added a dash of soy sauce.
I fixed this last night and must say it is outstanding. I used bone in pork chops since I did not have a tenderloin (I had chops from a speciality meat shop). I also used Sambal Oelek as my chili sauce because that's what I had on hand. I just rubbed the chili sauce on the chops then sprinkled the garlic mixture on both sides and sort of rubbed it in. Fried in olive oil 4 minutes on each side. I followed the recipe for the salad except for adding onions and avocado. My hubby didn't think he could eat a meal without a potato, rice or pasta but realized he could and loved it. I would definitely make this for a small
dinner party and wait for all the accolades!!! Sooo very easy and only you know it.
