Plate Finished Product 

Fall is here & even though it is still 90 degrees outside in October I figured it time to cover the BBQ & start bringing the cooking back indoors. This pork tenderloin was really a last minute creation when my friend & I decided to do a last minute dinner I said I had a pork tenderloin and she brought over a peach, a pear, & a jalapeno. We put it all together & created this delicious dish. 


 This pork tenderloin can be served with or without the peach & pear salsa. Other topping ideas would be a citrus salsa. I mango salsa. or just a regular fresh tomato salsa. Great side dishes would be garlic mashed potatoes or red smashed rosemary baked potatoes.
