Recipe of the Week!

Straight from one of our awesome new cookbooks, we have this week's recipe:

Grilled Pork with Plum Salsa

  • 1 Pork Tenderloin (about 1lb)
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
Plum Salsa:
  • 1 naval orange
  • 1 pound fresh plums or nectarines, pitted and diced
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1 teaspoon minced serrano chile
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Trim away excess fat or silver skin from the pork and place in a heavy, resealable plastic bag
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the wine, orange juice, olive oil, honey, and cumin. Pour over the pork, turning to coat evenly, Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 4 hours, turning frequently. 
  • For the salsa: cut the peel and pith away from the orange following the curve of the fruit with your knife, and then cut into 1/2 inch cubes, discarding any seeds or large bits of membrane. Put in a glass or stainless steel bowl. Add the plums or nectarines, onion, chile, cilantro, lime juice, ginger, cumin, and cinnamon. Season with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour, stirring often. 
  • Remove the pork from the refrigerator at least 20 minutes before grilling. Remove the pork from the marinade and pat dry, discarding the marinade. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Preheat a gas grill to medium-high. Brush the grill grids with oil. Place the pork in the center of the grill, cover, and cook, turning 2 to 3 times until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the pork registers 140F, 12 to 18 minutes. Transfer to a plate or cutting board and let stand for 10 minutes. 
  • Cut the meat into thin slices and divide among 6 small plates. Pour any juices that have collected in the plate over the meat. Top each serving with a generous spoonful of the salsa.
Wine pairing:
  • Zinfandel or Riesling
