Twist into a braid and then into the oven: Marinated Tenderloin Twist
Normally when we think about food and hair the associations aren't very appetizing — the last thing we want is to find a follicle in our fillet! But with this next recipe we've put a "twist" on the hair and food combination by braiding the meat to create a yummy and — dare I say — stylish dish. Here's one we call the Marinated Tenderloin Twist...
- 1 pork tenderloin
- olive oil
- rosemary, chopped
For the marinade:
- 1 tbsp paprika
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp chili powder
- First prepare the marinade by mixing all of the ingredients.
- Cut the tenderloin lengthwise into three equal-sized pieces, but don't cut right to the end. Now braid the three pieces and baste the tenderloin with marinade.
- Prepare the potatoes by mixing them with olive oil, rosemary, and salt.
- Place the potatoes and the marinated tenderloin on an oven tray and bake for 30 minutes at 375° F.
You don't have to be a hairdresser to make this style come out perfect. It's a hearty meal packed full of flavor for the next time you're in the mood for some meat and potatoes — and you can't deny that this is one "hair" you'll be happy to have on your plate!
