|A Home Cooked Pork Dinner|
|Start with a Marinated Pork Loin|
Orange Teriyaki Pork with Green Beans and Onions, Parsley Potatoes
|Add Orange Flavor|
- 1.5 pound teriyaki marinated pork loin
- 1 orange
- 1/2 pound green beans, trimmed and blanched
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/2 medium onion, sliced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6-8 small red potatoes
- 2-3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- generous handful fresh parsley, chopped
I cooked my orange teriyaki pork on my gas grill. You can do the same or use your oven, set at 400 degrees F. Make a cooking surface by placing two sheets of aluminum foil together. Fold over the edges making sides to your make-shift pan. Drizzle a little olive oil in the bottom of the "pan". Open the pork package and place the pork on the aluminum foil. Zest the orange, Cut the orange in half and mix the zest with the juice of 1/2 the orange. Pour the zest/juice combination over the pork. Preheat your gas grill or oven. I have a three burner grill and turn off the middle burner. Place the foil pan with the pork over the center of the grill, close the cover and cook until the pork registers 145 degrees F on an instant read thermometer.
Meanwhile, quarter the potatoes and place in a pan with salted cold water. Cook the potatoes until fork tender. Add salt and pepper to taste, butter and parsley. Toss and set aside. You want the flavors to meld together.

In a medium frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon unsalted butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add the red pepper flakes, garlic and onions. Cook together until soft. Add the green beans and cook until tender, but still crunchy. Cover and set aside.
