Method

  1. For the Pork and Dry Rub, randomly punch holes in pork with a knife. Mix all dry ingredients and rub onto pork.
  2. For the Marinade, combine all ingredients. Place tenderloin in plastic bag and add marinade. Marinate tenderloin for 72 hours in refrigerator.
  3. For the Fruit Salsa, mix all ingredients and let stand approximately 2 hours to develop flavors.
  4. For the Purple Mashed Potatoes, boil potatoes in salted water until tender; drain. Cream the roasted garlic. In medium saucepan, heat garlic, milk and butter until warm. Mix potatoes and milk mixture until smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper.
  5. For the Grilled Veggies, marinate veggies in roasted red pepper dressing for 30 minutes. Grill veggies until done. Add salt and pepper.
  6. After pork has been in marinade for 72 hours, grill pork over flames until brown. Move away from flames, cover grill and continue to cook pork until done, approximately 25 minutes or until internal temperature is 160°F.
  7. To serve, pipe out purple mash in center of each plate, using a pastry bag with a large tip. Bias cut tenderloin in 1/2" slices (approximately 7-8 oz. per serving). Shingle pork around base of mashed potatoes. Top with Fruit Salsa. Garnish with Grilled Veggies.
