One more recipe (a spicy one!)

I go back to work tomorrow, so you won’t have to hear nearly so much about my attempts at housewife-ness. But until then…
Here’s another recipe! This one’s super-zesty, which is what I love about it. It’s honey spice-rubbed pork tenderloin, and it’s from Kraft’s Food & Family magazine, the spring 2008 edition.
Here’s the final product:
And here’s the recipe:
– 1 pork roast
– 1/4 cup Catalina salad dressing
– 1 tsp. red pepper
– 1 tsp. garlic powder
– 1 tsp. dry mustard
– 1/2 tsp. Season Salt
– 1 Tbsp. honey
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place meat in a baking pan and brush meat with 2 Tbsp. of the dressing. Mix dry ingredients and rub onto the roast. Mix remaining 2 Tbsp. dressing and the honey; set aside.
Bake 15 minutes; brush with the dressing mixture. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until the pork is cooked through. Remove the roast from the oven; cover it with foil and let it stand about 5 minutes before slicing.
Once you slice it, it’ll look like this:
And it will be yummy!! I especially like the ends, which have lots of the spicy rub on them.

    Now this I could go for, beings I’m no fan of pasta dishes. Kraft’s Catalina salad dressing would make any meat yummy.
    One of my favorite meats is Kunzlers ham loaf which comes in a one pound and a two pound loaf in a aluminum pan ready for the oven. It can be found in the frozen food sections. Some Giants carry it, Karns do and maybe I’ve also seen it at Walmart. Cold,it makes yummy sandwiches and hot–good with scalloped potatoes.

    I would never have thought to use Catalina dressing this way. That looks SO good! I think it’s going to be on my menu at some point in the next few days!

    LOOKS DELICIOUS! You have become quite the culinary talent! I want it for lunch…now!

  5. Melanie says:

    Jo–thanks, but sadly I don’t have a Giant where I live. I’ll find a good deal somewhere though–I have to make this soon! LOL

    Gave it a try and we thought it was yummy also.
    Even thought I had to make it without the red pepper, because “someone” doesn’t like spicy, it was still excellent.
