I took advantage of New York Fries’ buy-one-get-one-free offer on Twitter after the Canadian Women’s Hockey won gold (yay!) and got myself some yummy yummy poutine for dinner. I thought I should eat a more balanced diet (even though I’ve made a meal out of a regular sized poutine frequently – definitely a guilty pleasure).
I was inspired by Fancy Fast Food when I thought of this recipe. I decided to pair New York Fries poutine as a side to accompany the pork tenderloin I had just gotten from the supermarket, while it’s fresh.
Recipe: Seared balsamic pork tenderloin with mozzarella curd poutine
- 1 strip of pork tenderloin (there are two pictured)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp oil
- 1 regular New York Fries poutine
- Marinate/rub tenderloin with salt, black pepper, and balsamic vinegar.
- Heat oil in frying pan on medium high heat.
- Sear tenderloin on each side for 2 minutes, then cover and cook for 4 minutes. Flip to other side and cover again for 4 minutes, then turn off stove.
- Arrange poutine on plate, then place the tenderloin next to it. Pour the juice from the frying pan over tenderloin and poutine. Serve immediately.
As you can see, I began eating before I remembered to take the picture haha. The tenderloin was, well, what else but tender, and so so juicy. I managed to season and time it so perfectly that I was very proud of myself. It was totally worth the trip to fetch the poutine! Oh and the second free poutine? Of course I shared it with a friend! Good food is best shared x)
