Cuban Mojo Pork Tenderloin With Black Beans and Pineapple Salsa

This light and summery dish is a great way to change up how you cook a delicious and tender pork fillet.


The pork is placed in a cuban mojo marinade overnight before being cooked sous vide until tender. It is then pan fried and served alongside some warming cumin black beans and a zingy pineapple salsa. There are so many other delicious sides you could add to this meal. I like serving this with some simple rice and salad.


One of the things I love most about cooking sous vide is that you can prepare and cook the pork in advance and then pan fry or even throw on the grill just before you are about to serve!


A more exciting way to liven up your pork fillet!

This dish is great served with fresh salad and rice, or any other side dishes you can come up with!

A healthy, balanced meal that is perfect for preparing in advance for an easy midweek dinner or as part of your summer bbq!
