Who would have thought...

Well, this has certainly been a new style of eating for us this week. Tonight was a blueberry sauce over pork tenderloin and it was amazing. Neither of us ever thought of blueberries with something savory, but it works. It's good. :)

We found this recipe on Paleo Plan.

Pork Tenderloin with Blueberry Sauce

  • 1-1/4 lb pork tenderloin
  • 2 tsp Mrs. Dash Chicken Grilling Blend seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 lb green beans, trimmed
  • 1 Tbs olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 1-1/2 cups frozen blueberries, thawed
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme

  • Heat oven to 400° F.
  • Rub pork with Mrs. Dash seasoning and 1/4 tsp each sea salt (optional) and black pepper. Place in a roasting pan and roast for 25 minutes (or until internal temperature reaches 155° F).
  • When about 10 minutes of cooking time remains, remove pan from oven and spread green beans around pork. Working quickly, drizzle green beans with 1/2 Tbs olive oil. Stir and return pan to oven.
  • Heat remaining 1/2 Tbs olive oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add onion, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add blueberries, vinegar, honey, thyme, remaining sea salt (optional) and black pepper.
  • Continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until thickened.
  • Serve pork alongside green beans with sauce drizzled on top.
