My local grocery store is Publix.
Every day, Publix puts on cooking demonstrations and tastings. If you like what they are cooking, you can grab a recipe card complete with shopping list.
They also have a display case right there where you can grab most of your ingredients.
The recipes are usually tasty, fresh and seasonal.
This week, the featured recipe was Fig and Rosemary Pork. I already had bacon and figs on hand, plus pork loin and mushrooms were on sale.
Obviously, this dish was selected before I started my new diet, but I have cheated a little and had some for dinner. It is delicious. Even Hubby said, “you’re going to blog about this, right?” So, here I am, sharing the recipe with you.
Fig and Rosemary Pork
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
3 shallots, thinly sliced
10 small fresh figs, coursely chopped
1 pork tenderloin (about 1 lb)
1/2 tsp kosher salt

1 c fresh baby portabellas, sliced
3/4 c. Marsala wine
1/3 c. fat-free chicken broth
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
Season the pork with 1 Tbsp oil, rosemary, salt and pepper.
Let stand 5-10 minutes to marinate.
Place the pork on the grill. Grill 15-20 minutes, turning halfway, until 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
Let stand 5-10 minutes before slicing.
