If you're trying to figure out what to cook for dinner tonight then try out this amazing dish Mac and I cooked a few nights ago. We paired it with Layer Cake, Malbec and jammed out to the new Thundercat, "Drunk" album.  Check out the recipe below courtesy of HomeChef:

  • 8 oz. Brussels Sprouts
  • 12 oz. Carrot
  • 3 Thyme Sprigs
  • 1 Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 oz. Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 fl. oz. Apple Cider
  • 0.9 oz. Butter
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Baking Sheet
  • 1 Medium Pan

Trim bottoms off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than ping pong balls). Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" diagonal slices. Stem thyme and coarsely chop. Rinse pork tenderloin, pat dry, and season with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.

Place carrots and Brussels sprouts onto prepared baking sheet. Toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oilhalf the Parmesan (reserve remaining for cooked vegetables), ½ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper and spread into a single layer on one half of baking sheet. Roast 5 minutes and remove from oven. Vegetables will finish cooking in a later step.

Place a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and pork to hot pan. Sear until browned on three sides, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove to other half of baking sheet with partially roasted vegetables. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

Return baking sheet to oven and roast until vegetables are browned and tender and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-12 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining Parmesan and half the thyme (reserve remaining for sauce) onto vegetables. Let pork rest 5 minutes. While pork rests, make cider beurre blanc.

Return pan used to sear pork to medium-high heat. Add apple cider, bring to a boil, and reduce by half, 1-3 minutes. Remove from burner, swirl in butter, and add remaining thyme. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

Slice pork tenderloin into ½" pieces. Place roasted vegetables onto plate. Add sliced pork in front of vegetables. Spoon cider beurre blanc in front of pork.
