Sunday night, ever since I can remember, has been a family night dinner. We love to sit down at the dinner table and talk about how we enjoyed our week-end, and what is ahead of us in the new coming week. We usually sit down at the dinner table earlier than usual so we can have a long leisurely dinner with no time constraints. We love it.
Last night I had pork tenderloin in mind and wanted to try to try something different. As I was perusing my cookbooks, a lot of wonderful ideas were presented to me, but either the recipes were too long to prepare, not enough ingredients on hand and going to the store was not an option. After, what felt like hours of reading, I closed all my books and walked into my kitchen. I started gathering ingredients. One recipe sauce stuck with me using Marsala. Not having enough to make a sauce, it is must to at least have 1 cup of liquid to make a nice thick sauce, I reached over and grabbed the Port wine. Mixing the two was something I never did. The result was a great thick sauce, rich in texture, perfectly balanced with the pork tenderloin and stuffing.
I wanted to use the remaining mushrooms and some of the dried fruits I had in hand. Using the food processor was perfect to soften and mix everything well together. Any dried fruit, steamed chestnuts… would be perfect as well.
Have a wonderful week and Bon Appetit!!
