CEiMB - Peppercorn Pork with Wine Sauce

Rachel Hearts Food chose our Craving Ellie choice this week of Peppercorn Pork with Wine Sauce.  I love pork and pork tenderloin is an excellent choice.  However, I have never cooked pork tenderloin in a skillet!  New experience.  First you slice the tenderloin lengthwise and spread dijon mustard on it.  Then cut it into four piece and panfry it in a bit of olive oil.  It was very easy to make and very tasty.  I served, as you can see, with a Waldorf salad, green beans, and carrots glazed with a little butter and brown sugar.

As I drove out of my parking deck tonight, I couldn't help but think how blessed I am.  Blessed that my job is NOT a parking lot attendant.  My hat is off to those people (if I wore a hat which I don't) because they sit in the tiniest cubicle possible all day long, with a space heater, and a bottle of water, staring at cars going by.  I think I would be pulling my eyelashes out in about an hour of that.  Thank goodness God made all types of personalities.  I couldn't help but think how I get to walk around, chat with friends, and have all the luxuries of sodas, tea, water, etc. at my fingertips.  And bathroom privileges all day long.  Imagine that.

Sometimes I like to leave you all with a bit of eye candy.  This week, I'm focused on Jesse Metcalfe.  You might remember him from Desperate Housewives, but I saw a movie this week called the Eschelon Conspiracy (good one) and he was in that too.  I think he is very handsome.  Have a great week!

I agree, that the cooking in the skillet was a new thing, but one that I really appreciated...wasn't this EASY??? I will make this again for the flavor and the quickness with which it all went together. Yours looks wonderful, and I like the sides you chose to go with it.

Looks good! I mean the meat...ahhhh...the RECIPE!!!

It was my first time doing tenderloin in the skillet. It was easy to do. That will certainly be a new method in our kitchen.

This looks great Peggy! I haven't gotten a chance to cook this this week but I hoping I will have time next week! I'm so happy you are back in the blogging world!

I don't know what's better looking the meat or Jesse? Okay, Jesse wins but you can't go wrong with a yummy tenderloin either!

I think I could survive the parking lot attendant job if I could bring my laptop and access the internet lol I've seen that sometimes the attendants bring books or magazines so I guess the time passes... not sure about the lack of bathroom privileges though.

Haven't gotten around to making this one yet, but it looks like it was a hit. I'm looking forward to having it this weekend.
