There are days when I say, “Oh lawd, take me now!” One bite of this gorgeous Masala Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/Mango Scotch Bonnet Salsa and peace with my creator was made.
Clearly only a real nut bag would have a recipe blog and then proceed to tell you what an atrocious cook they are and how all of their recipes suck. So, no shock that I’m saying that this recipe for masala crusted pork tenderloin w/mango scotch bonnet salsa is amazing. But I will say this, it’s truly one of my favorites.
Punjabi meat dishes are savory, earthy, and the spice mix just makes them so rich that it’s nearly indescribable. The best way to put it is exactly what it would be called in India – meat masala. A spice blend concocted to bring out the best flavors and characteristics of the meat being cooked. A bit like a steak rub versus a cajun seafood seasoning.
Pork is easy to overcook, it’s honestly why I love the sous vide! Talk about set it and forget it, well at least for 2 hrs that is. Just a couple helpful hints: Don’t over grill, it’s literally just to crisp up the outside, so don’t over cook your tenderloin by grilling it more than a minute on each side. Two, if you’re not emotionally prepared for scotch bonnet, just switch it out for something lower on the scoville scale. The pork-tenderloin and the mango salsa will still be absolutely divine!
I want to spend more time gushing about how rich the flavors in this Masala Crusted Pork Tenderloin w/Mango Scotch Bonnet Salsa really are. You have the warm earthy notes from the peppers, fenugreek, garlic, cumin, turmeric, and coriander. Then the fresh light notes from the mango, lime, cilantro, and onion. All coming together in this perfect harmony of sweet, spicy, savory, and tangy. It’s a frikkin symphony in your mouth!
