Based on this post by the Little Fruit Fly, how could I not post this story?
So, I like pork. The other white meat -- get your minds out of the gutter! I've come to like it better than chicken and I usually have it every week. Despite the high, high, high sodium, I really like the Hormel pre-marinated pork tenderloins. In their natural state, they look like this:
Yes, I too was amazed that they had this picture on their website.
These are great (except for the sodium content) because they're very flavorfull, easy to toss into a pan and cook up, and they're a lot like the chinese BBQ pork except for the red dye no. 5.
One night I cooked one of these up. As I said, they're easy to cook: You open the package. You put the meat into a pan. You put it into the oven. Cook it. Cut and serve.
Now, it is a pork tenderloin. That's a somewhat cylindrical tube of meat. Ignoring the obvious joke, no big deal. Except for that night.... this is what it looked like when it came out of the oven:
No joke. At first, as I first grabbed the pan, I thought it was just my dirty mind. Then I sat the pan down and looked at it, and nope! Not just me. To be sure, let's get just a little bit closer, shall we?
I swear I am not making this up. I could show you that pan, I cook with it all the time. I had to take a picture, emailed it to several of my friends, asking for a second opinion as to whether it was just me. My mom couldn't stop laughing. She went into detail about how lifelike it was with the veins.... Stop it mommy, stop it!!
It made a really tasty dinner.
Hey, has anybody heard from my ex-boyfriend lately?
