Pork Tenderloin with Plum Salsa

March 29, 2009


When I was on Twitter a week or so ago, Little Brown tweeted a link to this recipe by Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page, the authors of The Flavor Bible.  Since plums are one of my favorite fruits, I printed the recipe.  Carl and I tried it the other night and we both thought it was delicious.  I diced the plums and the onions instead of slicing them, because I wanted it to look more like a traditional salsa.  I made it a little early and sampled it all afternoon, so we were lucky there was some left by dinnertime.  We both loved the plum salsa and said we’d eat it with tortilla chips.  We served the pork tenderloin with corn and a Caesar salad for a savory dinner.

    That does look good! I love trying different kinds of salsas; I may just have to try this recipe myself!

    Plums are one of my top 5 fruits! I’m definitely going to try this. Thanks to you and LB. =)

    I just saw your comment on my blog. Here’s the information about the Coraline show and if you use the code “BUST” or “CLNG” you can get the $65 tickets for $39. It opens May 7.

    We had pork tenderloin last night, too! But it did not look as tasty as this. Thanks for sharing.

    That looks SO delicious! Pork tenderloin is one of my favorite things to cook (it’s just so easy!!), so I’ll have to see if I can find this recipe. Usually I just season it with rosemary or thyme and olive oil and then pour some raspberry chipotle sauce on top after it is done cooking.

    Guess what I have sitting in my fridge for dinner tonight? Pork tenderloin! No plums in the house though. Might have to run out and get some, this does look delicious!

    I’m not a fan of pork unless it’s shredded with BBQ sauce but this salsa would be wonderful on fish or even chicken I would imagine.

  13. March 29, 2009 2:12 pm

    Looks delicious!

  14. March 29, 2009 2:34 pm

    Please invite me over for dinner 😉

    Definitely looks good — and adventurous! I’m so tired of eating the same ol’ stuff, and I’ve been trying to either make new things myself or provoke others in the house to give it a go. Not really having any luck lately! 🙂

    Mmmm! I’ve got to try this soon – there’s nothing in it that I don’t like! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  17. March 29, 2009 7:34 pm

    Yum! I never did get around to making this one!

  18. March 29, 2009 9:23 pm

    I’m totally going to star this post and try this recipe. Looks great!

    Not a plum fan, but do like salsa! My husband is afraid of pork though – fear came from his mom – he says she used to make them so black that they were almost inedible – but me? I grew up in Iowa and we would have the best BBQ’s with Iowa Chops!

    Well it certainly looks interesting! I’m so, so tempted to start twitter…

    Sounds delicious.

    Yummo! Two of my favorites-pork and plums. This looks and sounds awesome.

  23. March 30, 2009 2:08 pm

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’d like to try this with fish or chicken as we don’t eat a lot of pork. The salsa sounds fabulous.

  24. March 30, 2009 3:11 pm

    Yum! This looks so good. I love a fruity compote/relish on warm meat. Turkey/cranberries, pork/plums, it’s all good!

    I have a plum-glazed pork tenderloin recipe (for slow cooker) that I’ll post later this week; we can have a cook-off 🙂

    You know I love when you post food. This looks so good! I’m thinking of restaurants for you. I’m going to give you some recommendations.

    That dinner looks and sounds wonderful Kathy – my husband would love it!

    Thanks for stopping by Thingers last week! I’ve got the post up for this week, what do you do for your least-favorite books? ~ Wendi

    Mmm… Now I’m drooling on my keyboard. I should’ve had breakfast this morning for sure.

    It sounds delicious. I love fruit salsa and with meat..mmmm. Serious craving for this. I like Chevy’s mango salsa with pepper jelly, and chicken flautas.

  29. March 31, 2009 6:46 pm

    I’m salivating over those photos…perhaps I should start making dinner!
