The flavors are amazing in this Slow Cooker Pork Tenderloin with Plum Jalapeno Chutney. Lightly spicy peppers, sweetly tart plums, and ginger combined with fall apart,juicy, tender pork makes your taste buds dance with joy!
We made a trip to the local Farmer’s Market on Saturday, I love that place. We are so lucky in St. Louis that we have the Soulard Market. The same Soulard Market has been around here since 1779! America is barely older than our Soulard Market! How is that for crazy?
This market has everything. Every vegetable or fruit you could want. A whole spice and herb shop, bread stands, artisan sausages, and pastas. Right on down to turtle meat if that’s your thing (there is no judgement here). Not to mention if you want live chickens or bunnies they’re here too. With a whole wing for a flea market and homemade soaps, oils, etc. I’m sure I left out a lot, but you get the picture. It’s an adventure. With people shoulder to shoulder and vendors shouting from every direction to give the best deals.
Anyway these huge plums were so pretty all stacked to perfection, I had to find a something special to do with them. Other than just biting into one, although that thought did cross my mind more than a few times. Then my inspiration struck.
I saw this William Sonoma Chicken with Plum Relish, THIS was the special dish I was looking for. The flavors of this are amazing. Lightly spicy peppers , sweetly tart plums, and ginger. All served atop fall apart, juicy, tender pork makes your taste buds dance with joy! This is definitely worth opening a bottle of wine for dinner. We had a bottle of Shiraz, but I’m sure a Chardonnay or Riesling would work well with this too (or your own favorite…again…no judgement).
For sides we had a quick creamy alfredo pasta and steamed seasoned broccoli. Really just baked potato and a salad would probably do just fine next time, because I know I’ll be making this one again and again. It was that good.
