BBQ pork recipe

As we’re getting into BBQ season, I thought I would share with you a recipe I’ve tried over the week-end. It’s dead simple, inspired by a Jamie Oliver recipe, and really good! You almost feel like you’re in Texas 🙂

Put twice as much fennel seeds as cumin seeds (don’t go crazy, 1 tablespoon of fennel seed is enough), some minced garlic (i love garlic, so i put 4 cloves) and crush them (with a pestle and mortar). Add some paprika (1 Tsp), the zest of one orange, the juice of one orange, half a bottle of ketchup, and a good 6 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Mix well. Add thyme, salt and pepper. Taste. Does it taste good? Too sweet, add vinegar, too mild, add paprika etc… Make it yours. Taste it. Love it!

The night before, marinate some pork tenderloins (that you’ve, of course, sparkled with salt and pepper before).

On the big day, cook and enjoy! It’s dead easy, and yet, really good!

Summary of what you need:
cumin seeds
fennel seeds
1 orange
balsamic vinegar
pork tenderloins
