Yesterday was rough. Mostly because our wedding day was over, but also because I was so unbelievable hungover. I did the normal bride thing and forgot to actually eat my dinner AND CAKE (which I’m still really pissed about) then thought 4738298902828 shots of vodka in a row was a good idea. I’m obviously an idiot in my new married life. So yesterday was spent trying not to throw up, not speaking and trying to remember the missing chunks of the end of my night. We were serenaded by a man bringing us breakfast in bed. You know what I don’t want to do when I’m hungover? Have a man serenade me in bed when all I’m trying to do is go face deep in the hash browns. That was a rough start to the day. But 11 hours and 5 meals later, I finally rid myself of my hangover. I’m a drinking pro.
I cannot wait to show you guys pictures, but right now I’m about to hop on a catamaran and not take shots. No shots, ever again. So for now, you’ll have to check out the one instagram post I shared! Can’t wait to share all the details about the day soon! It was seriously so effing awesome.
You know what else is awesome? This tenderloin. It’s on freaking point!
For the dry rub
- 1 - 1 1/2 pound pork tenderloin
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon five spice powder
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
For the sauce
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil
- Mix together spices for the dry rub then rub it thoroughly into the pork. Heat up a large saute pan over medium high heat. Once hot, add ghee and sear the pork on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Once seared, place on the baking sheet. Place in oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees. Once done cooking, remove and place some foil on top and let rest for about 5 minutes.
- As soon as the pork goes in the oven, place all of the ingredients for the sauce, except for the cilantro, into the pan and use a wooden spatula to scrape the bits from the pork. Let come to a low boil and reduce down by a third. This will take 10-15 minutes depending on the pan size. Once sauce coats the back of a spoon, add chopped cilantro.
- Slice pork then pour sauce on top and garnish with fresh cilantro on top!
