You know those meals that make you want to dance? The ones that give you chills? This isn’t your mama’s baked chicken, macaroni and collard greens but it’s pretty darn close! It’s simple to make and doesn’t require anything out of the ordinary… except Shallots. I’d never cooked with Shallot until now, but it won’t be the last time I use them, OKURR?
So, a little background on how I came about making this. My coworker, Finna had been raving about a pork loin she made from a hello fresh box. I asked for the recipe and it called for fig preserves-I’m not a fan of jelly on my meat so I decided to tweak the recipe a bit. I found a butter steak recipe on Pinterest that looked delicious and decided to merge the two recipes. While it’s unique it’s not completely my recipe so I want to give credit to eatwell 101 and Hello Fresh! 🙂
2 lbs Pork Loin
1 shallot (diced)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 Tsp Dijon Mustard
1 Tsp Red pepper flakes
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup Chicken Stock
1Tsp lemon juice
**Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
1. Mix Soy sauce, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper in a medium sized bowl. Place pork loin in mixture and put in the refrigerator to marinate for 30 mins.
2. Melt butter in skillet on medium heat. Sauté pork loin until brown on each side 1-2 minutes on each side.
3. Line a cooking pan with aluminum foil and place pork loin on top. Fold aluminum foil up in a boat-like figure so it can hold the soy sauce. Pour soy sauce from skillet onto the pork loin. Wrap up and place in oven for 15-20 minutes
4. On reduced heat cook shallot and garlic until fragrant and semi brown. Not too brown! Add lemon juice, chicken stock, mustard and bring to a boil. To thicken you can stir in a little butter
5. Place pork loin in skillet and pour in 1/2 of the Soy Sauce. Let simmer on low for 5 mins. Cut into pork loin to make sure it is cooked all the way through.
You can pair with spinach and rice like me 🙂
