This past week I happened upon a very large amount of leftover plums. Long story short: I had to feed snack to 80 kids and accidentally bought way too many (on the plus side, the cases of plums at the US Foods Chef Store were $19.98, which is a crazy good price for 180 plums).
So, with all these plums, I decided I needed to incorporate them into all of my meals. I had a Smithfield® pork tenderloin ready to go for my usual recipe, but then I realized that plums may actually be delicious on this tender cut of meat. People eat apples and pork together all the time, right? Why not plums?
Let me tell you: it turned out really well. The glaze was the right amount of sweet and the meat was super moist and delicious. Serve it sliced alongside some mashed potatoes and a veggie and you’ve got a meal fit for Sunday Supper.
Here’s a tip: don’t overcook the tenderloin. Use a thermometer and take it out of the oven when the thickest part of the meat reaches 145º. It will be a little pink, but not because it’s not cooked properly. The color is just the nature of the meat.
With beef prices so high right now, our family is sticking to chicken and pork for our meats. Even better, right now you can grab a Smithfield® coupon for 75¢ off any marinated pork product. This was a perfect quick, easy and inexpensive meal where I could use the ingredients that I already had on hand.
