If you ask my daughter where her favorite place to eat is, without hesitation she’ll answer Nordstrom. Random, huh? Not sure if it’s actually the food for her, or simply that we usually meet there with a fun group of friends, but she loves going there. If we eat lunch at the mall, Nordstrom is always her first choice and mine. They seriously have great food and cater so well to kids. This recipe comes from the Nordstrom Family Table Cookbook. Since I like the cafe so much, I figured I would give their cookbook a try and everything I’ve made out of this cookbook has been wonderfully delicious.
The original recipe for this Greek-Marinated Pork Tenderloin calls for slicing and skewering the meat before grilling, but I thought it was simpler to grill the pork tenderloins whole and slice afterwards. The pork is served in a pita and topped with a tomato and artichoke salad and a creamy tzatziki sauce. The combination of the lemon-scented pork along with these accompaniments is something to be relished. I tried taking a picture of the pork assembled in the pita, but didn’t get a good one because I was in a rush and dinner guests were waiting to be served. This is a great meal to make for company since all of the components can be made ahead of time and the meat can be put on the grill as the guests arrive. Everyone can assemble their own pitas to their own liking and there you go, an easy dinner party!
