Why do I love Wildtree so much? Because it is the lazy man’s way to eat healthy. I realized that most of my Wildtree recipe posts were a little involved and a little unhealthy (see Hamburgers and Homemade Potato Chips). I posted them because, for me, they are considered special occasion recipes. These recipes today are how we eat most of the time.
I bought the 4 pack of pork tenderloins at Costco for $18 and cooked two at a time.
For the first 2 tenderloins, I rubbed them with Wildtree’s Whole Grain Thyme Mustard and cooked them at 375 for about 45 minutes.
The pork was nice and juicy and the mustard had such a wonderful smoky thyme flavor. We ate this pork for about 2 nights and a few lunches.
I served it one night with broccoli sautéed in Lemon Grapeseed oil and sprinkled with parmesan cheese. The next night, I served the pork with asparagus roasted in the oven with Garlic Grapeseed oil and sprinkled with crushed red pepper.
Tonight, I am making pork tacos with the remaining two tenderloins. I am going to use the crockpot and sprinkle the tenderloins with Chipotle Lime Rub and cook until the meat is falling apart. I am making my own Tomatillo Corn Salsa from the Mexican Pack I received from Bountiful Baskets. The recipe for the salsa is here. Yummy! I can’t wait…
I bought the two-pack of whole fryers at Costco for $10.
I am in love with Wildtree’s Fast and Flavorful Brine. It truly lives up to its name. For a chicken, I rub the brine on the bird, cover it in plastic wrap and set it in the frig for two hours. I rinse the brine off the bird, drizzle it with grapeseed oil , and cook it at 375 until it is done (about 45 minutes to an hour).
I don’t know how it works, but the brine penetrates the skin and the meat is so flavorful and juicy. It is just delicious.
We ate the chicken for dinner with the sautéed broccoli and I ate the remaining chicken over salads for several meals.
For the other chicken, I am planning on making chicken and noodle soup with the big fat noodles handmade by someone else. It’s fall now and soup sounds so delicious.
So that is why I love Wildtree. I can take any protein out of the freezer and pair it with a Wildtree seasoning and I have a delicious, easy, and all-natural meal.
