Tonight we're trying something new! We are turning this pork tenderloin into medallions so we can top them with a luscious cheesy spinach dip. Oven-roasted potatoes and buttered broccoli make a meal the whole family can get behind!
Produced in a facility that processes milk, sesame, eggs, fish, shellfish, crustaceans, mustard, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybean and sulphites.
Mozzarella Cheese, shredded(ContainsMilk/Lait)
Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces. Toss potatoes with 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the middle of the oven, tossing halfway through, until golden-brown, 25-28 min.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) then spinach. Cook, stirring often, until wilted, 2-3 min. Remove pan from heat. Add cream cheese, mozzarella, wilted spinach and garlic to a large bowl. Mash together with a fork to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Pat the pork dry with paper towels. Cut tenderloin into 1 1/2-inch thick medallions. Season with salt and pepper. Heat the same large non-stick pan over medium-high. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then pork. Pan-fry, turning occasionally, until browned all over, 2-3 min. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, cook pork in batches, using 1 tbsp oil for each batch.)
Transfer seared pork to an 8x8-inch baking dish (9x13-inch dish for 4 ppl). Dollop the cheese and spinach mixture over top of the pork. Bake in the top of the oven until the cheese is golden-brown and pork is cooked through, 8-10 min.**
While the pork bakes, heat the same pan (from step 3) over medium. Add 3 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and swirl pan until melted, 1 min. Add broccoli and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Stir together. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5-6 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the spinach and cheese topped pork, potatoes, and broccoli between plates.
