I know it sounds like an odd combination, but the sweet flavor of ripe strawberries works surprisingly well in these recipes. Pork and mashed potatoes have such subtle flavors, they are far more versatile than the traditional garlic and herb variety we’re used to.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 2-pound pork tenderloin
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups strawberries stemmed and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 ounces goat cheese at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts toasted
  • 1/2 cup pork or chicken stock
  • Sweet Strawberry Mashed Potatoes recipe to follow

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 ̊F.
  • Butterfly Tenderloin: To butterfly the tenderloin, use a sharp knife and make a lengthwise cut down the center of the tenderloin to within 1⁄2 inch of the bottom. Open the cut meat and lay it flat between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pound the meat until it is an even thickness. Remove the top sheet of plastic wrap and lightly salt and pepper the exposed side of the tenderloin.
  • Mix Stuffing: In a small mixing bowl, stir together the strawberries, garlic, goat cheese, thyme, and pine nuts.
  • Stuff Tenderloin: Spread this mixture over the top of the tenderloin, leaving a clean 1-inch edge all around. Roll up the long side, removing the plastic wrap. Tie with butcher's twine every 2 inches to secure. Lightly salt and pepper.
  • Roast Tenderloin: Put the tenderloin in a shallow roasting pan along with the stock. Roast for 12 to 18 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 155 ̊F. Remove from the roasting pan, cover loosely with foil, and let the tenderloin rest while preparing the mashed potatoes. Slice and serve alongside potatoes.

Serves: 6 servings
Strawberries, white chocolate, thyme and potato mash
Ingredients
  • 3 pounds potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Instructions
  1. Cook the potatoes: Put the potatoes in a large pot and cover with cold water. Add the 1 teaspoon salt to the water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork.
  2. Heat the Liquid: In a small saucepan, heat the cream and butter just until the butter has melted.
  3. Mash Potatoes: Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Add the hot cream mixture and the white chocolate. Using a potato masher, mash the potato mixture to your desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the strawberries and thyme. Serve with sliced Strawberry Stuffed Pork Loin.

If you’re like me and feel like you’re doing something wrong if you don’t have more vegetables on your dinner plate, steam some fresh green beans. Their crispness add a nice contrast and their flavor is subtle enough they won’t compete with the other flavors in the dish.
