How to Make Dinner with Only 5 Ingredients
Audra Lowe: Everybody loves a home cook meal but realistically who has got the time to that every single night? Rhiannon and the kitchen know with the food networks Robin Miller with the great meal that so fast and so easy.
Rhiannon: Thanks Audra. You do not have to spend the hours in the kitchen making a great meal for your family. Robin is here today, she is going to show us a great recipe with just have a few simple ingredients that many you priority have at home.
Robin: Yeah, that is what I love to do. I love to create meals with kitchen staples. Pantry staples things you have in your fridge and your pantries. You can throw it together dinner with five ingredients or less. My new cook book Robin Rescues Dinner has over 350 recipes that take you 52 weeks of meals, so Monday through Friday 52 weeks of the year and a lot of them are five ingredients or less and even better, you get dinner of that night and then leftovers for a future meal during the week, and that is completely different.
Rhiannon: And that you are going to show us one of those today.
Robin: Absolutely, so I am going to show you my bacon wrapped pork tenderloin. Five ingredients or less, it is super easy. So, I have got pork tenderloin which I really love because they are super lean and you can find them everywhere. I mean, we are going to wrap this with fat meat.
We are going to still start up with the nice lean cut of pork tenderloin. I am going to do here is season the salt and pepper, so those are two pantries staples then I have got bacon. You want to get like nice good bacon, you can get apple with smoke bacon, and just something that you’re really like, you could use turkey bacon. I have done with that way too.
Rhiannon: Does the taste is good?
Robin: It taste just as great and it keeps it lean and because it some—we are going to roast this. It is not something that you have to worry too much about that drawing out.
Robin: Because we are going to wrap, and turkey bacon has enough of that fat in there, it would not dry out as you roast. So we just wrap it all the way down, and I have done this with chicken, I have done it with fish, I mean all kinds of different things, just wrap and also make a really nice presentation, this something you could do for guess.
So, the oven is preheated to 375, I am going to put this right into the roasting pan, and what I love to do is, I did not spray this because we have got the bacon so it would not stick, as I love this around for pork has a natural affinity with fruit. So I love to use peaches or in this case pineapple rounds. You can use fresh, you can use canned and use to put the rounds all around here and unleash you are going to roast up and get caramelize as the pork cooks in the oven.
So the recipe that I am showing you now is actually would be two pork tenderloins, if you want leftovers later in a week— Of course we did this because you want to work once and eat twice.
Rhiannon: How long do we cook that one pork?
Robin: So we cook that for 25 minutes or until an instant re-thermometer reads above 145 degrees and when meat cooks, when cook in the oven and you take it out, it continues to cook and you can go up another five degrees in the first five minutes of the oven. So always under do it a little bit. You want pork to be pink and not white and not dried out.
So, this is a beautiful presentation and there is the pineapple that has been roasted in the oven and the side dish, another five ingredients or less, it is so simple, broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and oregano, all toast together in a sauté pan and that was a fabulous side dish. So, all my main dishes come with some side dish suggestions over many recipes and desserts too.
Rhiannon: And that was a healthy side dish, I love that.
Robin: It was awesome and everybody loves broccoli. You kids would even love broccoli to put a sweet sun-dried tomatoes on it.
Rhiannon: So what are we making with the leftovers?
Robin: So with the leftovers, and you can do this. I have done this when I have not have leftover bacon wrapped pork tenderloin but I want it to make it like this wonderful Alsatian tart. I have done it with just the bacon.
So, this is just half pastry, that has been rolled into it, and rolled out into square covered with mascarpone cheese but you could also use just regular cream cheese, some parmesan, some oregano and some red onions. Nothing is cook first except the bacon, so it is really just in assembly type of the things.
Rhiannon: How about in the oven?
Robin: 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. This is a hardy tart. Is that fun? And I have done this. i just serve this as appetizers of hurry and then going on and have another main course. So the recipes are fun and they are simple and they are healthy and they are hearty and I think they really get people from the kitchen to table in a short amount of time.
Rhiannon: They are both delicious. Thank you so much Robin and if you are going to find more recipes, you can have it to our website Bettertv.com for a link to Robins. And Robins got time of great and easy ideas. Her book Robin Rescues Dinner is available in stores and on Amazon.com.
