How about a super easy, quick, meal your family will think took all afternoon to prepare? This is so easy it should be criminal. Sound good? Here it is, Medallions of Pork Tenderloin with Wine Mushroom Sauce and Egg Noodles.
Recipe serves 4
1 and 1/2 lb pork tenderloin – coat on all sides with seasoned pepper.
1 cup red wine.
1 can cream of mushroom soup.
1 envelope of onion soup powder (like Lipton).
8 oz jar of mushroom stems and pieces – along with juice in jar.
1/2 cup water.
1 bag egg noodles.
conola oil spray.
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Spray conola oil onto oven baking pan and add the pork tenderloin, do not cover.
To a large sauce pan add all other ingredients except egg noodles. Stir to mix.
Put pork tenderloin in oven for 35 to 40 minutes (need interior temperature of 150 to 160 degrees F).
At same time turn heat on sauce pan to medium. Bring to slow boil, stir and look out for boil over! Then reduce heat to low simmer to keep sauce at a slow bubble. Stir often. The goal is to reduce the mixture to a nice thick sauce as the tenderloin cooks. If the sauce gets too thick you can add more water.
With 15 minutes left on the timer bring large pot of water to boil.
When tenderloin is cooked remove from oven, cover with foil, and let if set up while you prepare the egg noodles per package instructions.
When noodles are almost done move tenderloin to cutting board and slice it into nice 1/3 inch or so medallions.
Plate the medallions, noodles, and drizzle wine sauce over both.
Add a vegetable if you want and that’s it you just wowed em!
Alight already, in the past I have been cool to itty bitty electric cars that can drive around the block a few times before needing to recharge. Fact is I had to push one back to the electric recharge station once and I was not a happy camper. Seemed to me they were at worst status symbols and at best toys. Until now!
How about an awesome electric vehicle that goes 110 mph and can cruise at city speeds for 128 miles. A car? No. How about the the Brammo all electric 2014 Empulse motorcycle! http://www.brammo.com/home/
This bad boy looks like a traditional hot racing motorcycle except on closer examination it has a motor from another dimension. The motor has 40kW of power (What? 54hp. Oh.) and gets 438 MPGe. You could literally silently ride up the coast for 80 miles combined city/highway miles, find a nice level 2 recharge station and while eating lunch and sightseeing for 2 hours recharge the battery and head home.
If I had a motorcycle license and a spare 16 g’s the Brammo Empulse would be in my garage.
