It's worked...although I've been working out at Kosama since January 9, when I did my last test out the scale hadn't moved. Yes, I had lost fat mass and gained muscle (they have a special scale that tells you all that) but it's disheartening to know after all that work that you still weigh the same. It's taken this long to start seeing the scale shift, even though my clothes are fitting better, and I think dinners like these should get partial credit for that.
P.S. This was fantabulous! I thought pork loin was expensive but I got a little guy at Hy-Vee for $4 that was enough to feed Justin and I...can't really beat that!
5 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 T balsamic vinegar
2.5 t salt
.5 t ground pepper
2 T olive oil
Stir together all the ingredients and then add to a baggie with the pork tenderloin to marinate overnight. Sear the tenderloins on all sides, then grill for 20-30 minutes, rotating every 10 minutes, until the internal temperature is 160 degrees. Just like chicken, you want to keep a good eye on pork, if you get it overdone, it will not be juicy and tasty, it will get dry and lose a lot of flavor. Let the meat rest 4-5 minutes before slicing.
I served this with one of our favorite veggies, the roasted brussel sprouts, and that was that!
I'm a huge fan of marination lately...soak that yumminess up all day while I'm at work so I can put you in my stomach after my workout! Mmmmmmmm, I'm such a carnivore! :)
