Meijer is having a sale on theirs for $8.22, so 2 would be 16.44. The approximate weight adding both together would be 5.5lbs.
What would of Fresh Thyme’s total cost if they had the extra .25lbs? Would it be 13.50? Did I end up saving a whopping $2.94?
Now what I need to know is which store has the better cut of meat and that will be harder for me to determine.
Since I do have two pork loins and I’ve already made one recipe a couple days ago (Pork Tenderloin with Garlic Lemon Pasta) and decided to cut the second one into medallions. With my new love for leeks I found this yummy looking recipe on reciperunner.com. Again, I know, another recipe with a cream sauce, but this one is made without a heavy cream and we can substitute the milk, cheese and yogurt with low-fat or non-fat product. Pork is a red meat, not the other white meat, but is typically better for you then beef because some of the cuts like loin, chops and steak are leaner. Tenderloin even is better than a chicken breast, if you’re counting calories.
1 lb pork tenderloin, remove the silverskin, trim the fat and cut into 1/2”-3/4” slices
(You know mine is 2.38lbs, so I’m either going to cut it in half and freeze the unused potion or double my recipe...do you need more than 4 servings? Than I’d double it)
1 tablespoon olive oil.
12 oz white mushrooms.
1 leek, clean and chop the white and light green parts
1 teaspoons minced garlic.
A teaspoon of thyme leaves
Salt and pepper, to taste.
1 tablespoon flour.
3/4 cup 1 % milk.
1 oz low-fat cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt, room temperature
