I love grill recipes like this cause they’re great when you don’t have alot of time to make something all in the kitchen. Just whip up a marinade, let it sit, then the husband can take care of most of the rest. The sauce in this one is so unique! Soy, peanut butter, lime juice, spices, apricot, and orange juice?!? What the what?? Y’all, it is such a crazy good combination and smells just like you’d think.
My package had two tenderloins but they cooked down quite a bit so it was the perfect amount for the two of us plus some leftovers (and it was even better left over). We let ours marinate in the fridge for a few hours, squishing it around to re-mix it every hour or so. And yes, our ziplocs say “Texas Tough” :)
Matt had gone dove hunting the day before this so he threw some of his famous bacon-wrapped/jalapeno/cream cheese/dove breast thingies on the grill too since Carl was out. I’m not a huge fan of dove meat, cause of the bone in it, but I love anything bacon-wrapped with cream cheese so he cuts them up for me like a super sweet husband.
That’s it! Just slice ’em up and drizzle the sauce all over them with a dash of some cilantro leaves. We had some extra sauce so I dipped mine in it too. I just couldn’t get enough of that sauce!
And no, bacon-wrapped dove breasts aren’t really a typical side dish but we’ll just call this a meat-filled, uber-man dinner (insert Tim the Tool Man grunt).
I’ll be helping my friend Rosalie with her Halloween party tomorrow night. I’m going as the blonde girl from Orange is the New Black…which I have never watched, but we found an orange prison jumpsuit for $7 at a thrift store so… But then it’s back to my problem child project. Metal is involved and I already have half a dozen cuts so there may be some real blood around our house this Halloween weekend.
Oh, and if you didn’t catch it already, our very first Talented Tuesday link party started this Tuesday so click here to join in and show us your creations!!!
