Lightning Fast {CtBF} #EverydayDorie

It’s Friday! Here’s a lightning fast post about this week’s lightning fast recipe for Cook the Book Fridays from Everyday Dorie: Lightning Fast Tahini Pork.

Perfect for a weeknight where you don’t have much time, for preparation or cooking, this dish practically makes itself. First, you toss cubes of pork tenderloin in a fragrant spice mix (cumin, ancho chile powder, ginger, and turmeric), then brown them in oil. Then, in quick succession, you add honey, cider vinegar, water, and tahini mixed with lemon juice to the pan. Once the pork is cooked through, more lemon juice rounds out the sauce and you’ve got dinner!

The pork comes together so quickly, there isn’t much time to fuss with sides. I served the pork with couscous (which is practically instant) and some sautéed greens.

This is a good recipe. However, I should have chosen a different accompaniment. There’s a lot of sauce, and the couscous wasn’t the ideal sponge. You don’t really want to waste a drop.

If you want to try it, you can find the recipe on page 168 of Everyday Dorie. Other recipe reviews from the Cook the Book Fridays gang can be found here.
