The Best Meal I've Had All Summer
August 17 12:58 PM
The most memorable item I’ve tasted all summer is Char Sui Teriyaki Glazed Pork Tenderloin
When friends came in from out town we got together for a BBQ party.  So we stopped at Wohlner’s and grabbed a couple pork tenderloins, a bottle of Lawry’s Teriyaki Marinade with Pineapple, and some charcoal. 
Once home I removed the silverskin and aaany excess fat, then marinated the pork tenderloins for about 30-60 minutes while getting ready for the meal. 

When it came time to grill I wiped off the Teriyaki marinade because the sugar in the Teriyaki can burn.  I seasoned the pork tenderloin with a little salt and pepper and grilled it over direct heat just until browned evenly on all sides.  Next I brushed on more Lawry’s Teriyaki and grilled until teriyaki sauce was starting to char a bit. Then brush on a second layer of sauce and move the pork tenderloin to a cooler part of the grill way from the direct heat.  Continue cooking until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°-148°.  (Yes, the new government rules for cooking pork are minimum of 145°with a 3 minute rest afterwards, so no more dried out flavorless pork.)  There will be a tinge of pink remaining but be assured it is perfectly cooked. 

Finally, slice and serve.
Make this flavorful pork tenderloin recipe and have your own BBQ dinner party with something extraordinary and memorable. 

Notes about Pork Tenderloin:  It is the fillet of pork, and it’s almost as lean as skinless chicken breast.  Don’t overcook or it will be dry, cook to about 145f to 150f internal temperature and allow to rest for at least 3 minutes before cutting or eating.  Pork Tenderloin is great at picking up flavors from sauces or marinades, so free to experiment with things like peach BBQ sauce, Chinese Hoisin, Apricot Mustard , or I want to try an Apricot Chipotle glaze with ginger and garlic.  *Be sure to remove the ‘silver skin” from the pork tenderloin before marinating or cooking

Char Su in the style of Trader Vic’s:
Polynesian style Pork Tenderloin Hors d’ourves with Chinese Hot Mustard and Sesame Seeds

This hors d’ourves item was made popular at the famous Trader Vic’s and this begs for a tropical rum drink with one of that little umbrella’s in the glass.  With Sailor Jerry’s Spiced Rum on sale that should be easy for you to do.

Make the Char Sui Pork Tenderloin with Lawry’s Teriyaki as directed above, but don’t char it as much, or bake it in the oven.  After cooking allow it to cool and slice it moderately thin.  (Ideally, you could cook it ahead of time and refrigerate the pork tenderloin until ready to serve, or even take to a party, and serve chilled.) 

The dipping sauces:
1) Chinese style Hot Mustard:  Mix up some Coleman’s Dry Mustard or a dry Chinese mustard powder in a 1:1 ratio of mustard pwder to cool water, stir well into  a thick slurry and allow to rest for 10 minutes.  Set in a small shallow bowl to dip the pork into. 
2) Catsup:  Next, in a second shallow bowl pour in some catsup.
3) In a third little bowl some toasted sesame seeds. 

How to eat this:
(It sounds crazy telling you how to eat this, but you’ll need to tell you guests because they will always ask.  Also, warn people that the hot mustard is indeed hot.) 
First dip a slice lightly into the Chinese hot mustard, next into the catsup, and then dip into the toasted sesame seeds.  Finally enjoy by eating.

I am confident that you’ll find this one of the best appetizers s you’ve ever had!

Note:  The original recipe calls for a homemade marinade, and to be oven baked.  I find the Lawry’s with Pineapple to be even better, and prefer charcoal grilling also.   Because you can oven bake pork tenderloin this is a great year around appetizer.

Canadian Bacon Facts
Canadian Bacon has 83% less fat, 67% less calories, 50% less cholesterol, and 33% less sodium per ounce then regular bacon.  Canadian Bacon is cured and smoked lean pork loin whereas regular back is made from pork belly.  Wohlner’s cures, smokes and fully cooks its own Canadian Bacon on the premises. 
If you compare an ounce of regular bacon to an ounce of Canadian bacon, you will find the health facts astonishing. Regular bacon contains 151 calories while Canadian bacon has two thirds less, 52 calories. The total fat for bacon is 12 grams while Canadian bacon only contains 2 grams making it low fat. Both bacons contain a lot of sodium but Canadian bacon contains less with 433 milligrams compared to 647 milligrams. There is half as much cholesterol in Canadian bacon as there is in regular bacon, 16 to 31 milligrams, respectively. Bacon in general contains no carbohydrates and both have about the same grams of protein, 10 grams in regular bacon and 7 grams in Canadian styled bacon.

Canadian Bacon Ideas:
Wohlner’s Canadian Bacon BLTs
Instead of cooking bacon make a easy and fast summer season  BLT with fully cooked Wohlner’s Canadian Bacon, Off-the-Vine Tomatoes, Rotella’s Italian Sliced Sandwich Bread, mayo or Miracle Whip, and leaf lettuce.   Canadian Bacon is fully cooked and low fat.

“Cowboy Cut” Steaks---Bone-In Ribeye Steaks
A bone-in Ribeye is called a Cowboy Cut steak.  Ask one of Wohlner’s butchers, not just meat cutters, to “french the bone” on Wohlner’s Bone-In Ribeyes.  Then when you almost done eating your delicious steak you have a handle to hold and nibble off the wonderful meat next to the bone.  Our butchers are glad to do it because they are real butchers, not merely meat cutter stocking cooler shelves with packages.

It’s called a Cowboy Cut for a reason; cowboy’s used the frenched bone as a handle to eat their steak out on the range (I’m not making this up, people.)  Try it at a BBQ party this week.
