- 1 1/3 lb of pork tenderloin
Maple syrup marinade
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- 1 shallot, minced
- 1 tablespoon tablespoon of Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon dry thyme
Risotto with maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons each of olive oil and butter
- 8 oz sliced mushrooms of your choice
- 1 onion and 1 clove of garlic, minced
- 1 cup Arborio risotto
- 1 1/2 cup chicken bouillon
- 3/4 cup dry white wine
- 1/4 cup maple syrup liqueur
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 sprig of fresh thyme
- 1/4 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
- 3 tablespoons maple butter
- 2 tablespoons parsley, minced
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- Mix all of the marinade ingredients. Season with pepper. Marinade the tenderloin while preparing the risotto, or longer.
- In a large casserole, heat 15 ml (1 tablespoon) of oil and melt 15 ml (1 tablespoon) of butter. Sauté the mushrooms and set aside.
- In the same casserole, heat the remaining oil and butter, and sauté the onion and garlic over medium heat.
- Add the rice, stir well and cook until it becomes translucent, for about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the chicken bouillon, wine, bay leaf, thyme, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cook, covered, over medium heat, for between 16 to 18, stirring frequently.
- Remove from heat. Remove the bay leaf and thyme spring.
- Add the Parmesan, maple butter and parsley. Mix well. Season. Add mushrooms.
- Preheat the oven to 190 °C (375 °F).
- Meanwhile, remove the tenderloin from the marinade, dry, and sear over high heat in an ovenproof frying pan. Gently brown on both sides. Season.
- Place pan in the oven and continue cooking for about 12 until the meat becomes pinkish in colour (pork is the tastiest and most tender when cooked to medium).
- To serve, slice and arrange on top of the risotto accompanied by a side of colourful vegetables.
