There is something about sliced pork tenderloin that makes me feel like I’m having a fancy meal. Sometimes I bake it with garlic and balsamic vinegar, and sometimes I put barbecue sauce on it. Slice it up and “plate” it well, and it feels like a bit above the others.

I also love pulled barbecue pork in the crockpot. It’s funny how this meal will have almost the same ingredients and yet a totally different feel.

The parmesan carrots are a great compliment to this meal and the hint of cayenne pepper gives it a bit of heat. Go heavy if you like heat, and lightly if you don’t.
