Sherried Pineapple Pork Tenderloin - 5 Ingredients or Less from Cooking Light


I have been so busy lately.  Between my girls school and sports activities, my part-time job, keeping up with household chores, spring cleaning and errands, it leaves little time for anything else.  Also, I can't forget about one of my favorite things to do.....cook and bake.  That takes time too!  Are you as busy as I am?  I know you are. 

Well, maybe this month's Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club can help you.  Our menu is based on the theme, 5 Ingredients or Less.  I'm all about quick and easy meals, especially during the week when there are so many things going on.  You can make great tasting food with a few ingredients.

My selection was the main dish which was Sherried Pineapple Pork Tenderloin.  It was very flavorful and simple to prepare.  We ended up grilling our pork loin and making the sauce in a saucepan on the stove.

I also made a grilled pineapple salsa to go with the pork.  This was in the March 2010 Cooking Light Magazine.  It was with another recipe for pork chops and I thought it would go perfectly with my Sherried Pineapple Pork Tenderloin.  The salsa was excellent and it was only 4 ingredients.  It would go so well with other dishes like chicken, fish or shrimp.

Note:  just follow the directions for the pineapple salsa and remove the directions for the pork chops

What did all the other busy ladies in the Supper Club bring?  Here's the rest of the menu with links to their recipes and photos.
