Are you looking for an easy, no-fuss meal that has all of the flavors of a summer bbq without slaving over the grill?? This recipe will be your answer.
Tender pork tenderloin cooked to perfection on the stove top with a side of crisp and crunchy slaw is perfect for a weeknight dinner or part of a weekend menu for entertaining (recipe can easily be doubled). It is also an excellent summer meal for those of you who might not have access to a grill.
Barbecue sauce is the highlight ingredient for the sauce and dressing. I like to use my Western Carolina Tomato-Based Sauce, but you can use whatever bbq sauce your taste buds prefer. Since the original recipe used cilantro in the slaw, I like to kick up the barbecue flavor with some chipotle in adobe. It's optional of course, but it's really, really good! (See my tip HERE about how to store leftover chipotle peppers and adobe sauce.) I also add a bit of mayo for a creamier dressing and I add some chopped scallions to complete the flavor profile for the salad.
If you do decide to make this for entraining a crowd, might I recommend my Mango Guacamole as an appetizer and for dessert...stay tuned.
