The perfect company dish enjoyed by kids and grown-ups alike! A roasted pork tenderloin is perfectly complemented by a sweet, tart cherry sauce and finished with fresh basil. Oh, and of course, it’s 21 Day Fix approved!
When I was thinking about starting the 21 Day Fix, I wanted to be all-in. But I knew that if I was going to make a REAL lifestyle change, it was going to have to be delicious. I needed to crave it. And I needed my family to love it, because who has time to make separate meals? Better question – who the heck wants to?
So for all of you that are in the same boat as me, here’s a great one that’ll please all of the people in your life (hopefully even the picky ones!) The inspiration for this was from an old favorite of ours from Cooking Light Magazine. Since their version uses store-bought cherry preserves, I needed to switch it up for the Fix and truth be told, I like my fresh-tasting, fixified version way better!
Honestly, this was one of the easiest meals to fixify that I’ve done. I switched out the sugar-laden cherry preserves for unsweetened frozen sweet cherries and slightly changed the cooking method. Period. Oh, and I added basil, because the combo of cherries, balsamic vinegar and basil is basically a match made in food heaven.
This makes a fantastic company dinner as well because you can easily get up to four pork tenderloins in an oven at once (you get about 3 fix servings out of each 1 1/2 lb pork tenderloin) and you can make the sauce ahead if you want. Plus, it’s super-simple – did I mention that this ridiculously delicious sauce has four ingredients? FOUR INGREDIENTS!! The savory pork pairs so beautifully with the sweet/slightly tart sauce and the chopped basil… ok, I’m getting hungry.
