Project 365 Day 237: Pork Loin With Cherry, Blueberry And Bacon Sauce


Dinner tonight was some pork loin from Costco that I grilled up on the Big Green Egg. I had some Blueberries and Cherries in the fridge along with some bacon, so I made a sauce with that to go over the Pork (see recipe below). I served it with some grilled Asparagus (also from Costco). The sauce went perfect with the Pork and the Asparagus was just tender enough. An excellent Dinner!

Big Green Egg Grilled Pork Loin with Cherry, Blueberry & Bacon Sauce.

Here’s the recipe for the sauce:

  • one cup pitted cherries
  • 1-2 cups blueberries
  • 2-4 strips of bacon cooked until done
  • one small yellow onion chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Truvia sweetner
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cook the bacon in a frying pan, adding the chopped onions for the last few minutes
  2. Remove the bacon from the pan and then pour the bacon drippings and cooked onions into a medium saucepan
  3. Chop the bacon up into small pieces
  4. Add the cherries, blueberries and chopped bacon to the pan and simmer over low heat for 15-20 minutes or until the fruit is very tender.
  5. Add the Truvia, salt and pepper to the sauce to taste.
  6. Serve over the cooked pork loin (medium rare is best).
  7. Enjoy!


Day 23-Taco Salad

Here’s Dinner for us on many Monday nights:

Day 23-Taco Salad

Day 23-Taco Salad

On most weeks we have a regular Monday dinner of what we call Taco Salad. We used to eat a lot of burritos on Monday’s but since we have cut way back on processed foods. beans and grains, this is a perfect substitute. Here’s the “recipe” if you can call it that:

  • 1 lb 80/20 ground beef cooked and seasoned with chili powder and/or cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1-2 hearts of Romaine washed and chopped
  • tomato chopped
  • a handful of shredded Mexican cheese
  • Salsa of your choice (we usually use a Mango salsa we get from Costco)
  • a dollop of full-fat sour cream
Sometimes we have Avocado with this as well.
The end result is a filling dinner that takes all of 10 minutes to make. Highly recommended!
