Now…I absolutely love to cook. Some recipes I will try then add my own twist to them to make them my own. Others, I will totally make up from scratch as I go. This recipe is one of them. Let me tell you…this is some good eatin’ here. The neat thing is that you can make everything in one pot with this recipe and it’s ready in under 30 minutes. Yum! Yum!
You will learn to make a quick way to cook cherry pork tenderloin in under 30 minutes for those days when you just don’t have time to cook.
Things You’ll Need:
Pork Tenderloin (to fit at bottom of pot)
1 jar of cherry preserves
5-6 potatoes (depending on size of family)
1 bag of small carrots (peeled and washed)
1/2 cup of onions (chopped)
1/2 cup of celery (chopped)
A couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary (dried is okay, but fresh is better)
1 tablespoon of garlic (chopped)
A sprinkle of white pepper
Salt and black pepper
1 cup of rum
2 cups of water (could vary)
Several ears of corn on the cob
Step 1: Place pork tenderloin in bottom of pressure cooker.
Step 2: Add the rum over the pork. Allowing the rum to saturate the pork. Then add a generous portion of the cherry preserves over the top of the pork. Leave some left over to top the pork before serving. (Don’t worry the alcohol will cook out. The rum is just for the flavor and it’s not that intense.)
Step 3: Wash and peel potatoes. Cut in cubes and place over pork mixture.
Step 4: Place the peeled carrots, onions, celery over the potatoes and pork.
Step 5: Add the white pepper and shake generously over stew. Then add the chopped garlic. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. (The reason I add white pepper too is because white pepper really enhances the flavor of the meat in the food.)
Step 6: Place the corn on the cob on top of the pork and veggies.
Step 7: Pour the water over the mixture only until the water reaches about 1/2 from the top of the pot. (Don’t worry about the corn not being covered in water. The steam in the pressure cooker will cook them to perfection without making the corn soggy.)
Step 8: Lay a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary on top of the dish.
Seal the pressure cooker lid and cook for approximately 20 minutes. About 10 minutes more if you are serving for a large family. Gently remove lid. Before serving, top the pork with a spoonful of leftover cherry preserves for taste. The cherry preserves will make the pork taste heavenly!!! Yum! Yum!
Serves approximately 3-4 people.
