Breaded Pork Strips

Posted Jan 12 2010 12:00am

This recipe is super yummy.  In fact, Adam finished his entire plate last night.  That very rarely happens on “try a new recipe” night.  Granted, this is extremely simple and quick, so it’s hard to mess up :)

I didn’t have any almonds, and refused to pay the high price, so substituted oatmeal in this recipe.

Breaded Pork Strips (adapted from Eating Well )

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 large egg white, beaten
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices

For a dipping sauce, mix 1/4 cup honey (I used agave nectar) 2 tbsp soy sauce, and 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard.

The hub’s plate was filled with the pork strips (don’t they look like chicken strips?), broccoli and a twice baked potato.

For the potato, I split a left over baked potato in half, scooped out the middle and mixed it with ricotta and some pepper.  Then I threw it into the oven for the last couple minutes with the pork.  Yum right?

After dinner we proceeded to watch more episodes of Big Love (so addicted!!) and had a late night snack.

Hubby made his white russian, per his usual kick and I mixed some vodka with pink lemonade, Crystal Light style, in our fancy glasses.  Something about fancy glasses makes drinking something fruity so much fun :)

Gus vegged out too!!

This is how he prefers to lay.  The kitty has been incredibly needy lately… lots of crying and following us around.  I think he still feels guilty for breaking my measuring cups .  He shouldn’t, because I was able to replace the broken 2 with a set of 3 for $9.99 @ Target :)

My pictures still stink.  I read that if you take pictures without the flash, they should turn out better on the point and shoot.  I think I need to do some major research… When our tax return comes back we’re going to get a fancy DSLR.  Hubby and I bought a couple books on cameras and already have our model picked out.  I can’t wait to really learn to take good pictures!!

No running for me today, I’m still sore from yesterday !! I’ll combine it with tomorrow’s workout @ the fitness center on campus.

What’s your favorite way to unwind at the end of the day?

Hubby and I tend to get very snack and usually have a night-cap.  But we’re out of wine, so we’ve been fancier lately :)
