Tuesday's Main Dish Recipe (Pecan-Crusted Sliders) WITH PHOTO NOW!
12 oz pork tenderloin, sliced crosswise in 8 pieces
2 Tbs honey
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 small green apple
1-1/2 cups shredded broccoli (broccoli slaw)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
8 small buns or dinner rolls, split
Dijon-style mustard, optional
With palm of hand, flatten pork slices to 1/4-inch thickness. In a shallow dish, whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon of the honey. In another shallow dish, combine chopped nuts, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Dip pork in egg mixture, then nut mixture, pressing to coat.
In a 12-inch skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook pork in hot oil 2 to 3 minutes per side or until golden and slightly pink in centers.
Meanwhile, for slaw, quarter apple; remove core and seeds; thinly slice. In bowl combine apple, shredded broccoli, mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon honey. Season with salt and pepper. For sliders, place pork on buns or rolls; top with slaw. Pass mustard.
