So, you are in a wonderful location with your ExploreUSA RV. The view is spectacular and you just want to stay right where you are, but you would like a really good meal. Here is an idea for just that occasion, and all you need is a grill, (a must for most Texas RV enthusiasts) lots of aluminum foil and the following ingredients:
- Pork Tenderloin 1 lb should serve about 4
- Potatoes – red potatoes are really good fixed this way, but any potatoes will taste great
- Colorful vegetables – like red, green and yellow bell peppers, zucchini and yellow squash
- Olive Oil
- Seasoned pepper
- Garlic Salt
- A small onion
- Raspberry Chipotle Jelly or marinade. If you cannot find this just get some raspberry jam and Chipotle seasoning and mix it to your liking.
Begin by covering the pork Tenderloin with a generous portion of seasoned pepper and garlic salt and marinade in about a cup of the Raspberry Chipotle.
Cut your potatoes in bite-size portions and add chopped onion – amount to your liking. Wrap the potatoes, again seasoned with the seasoned pepper, garlic salt and salt and plenty of olive oil so the potatoes won’t stick to the aluminum foil.
Cut your vegetables – In pieces large enough that they won’t fall through the grill. Marinade in olive oil, and yes, you guessed it….seasoned pepper and garlic salt.
You will want your grill to get to about 350-400 degrees. Start with the tenderloin – taking the meat out of the marinade and placing it right on the grill – turn often to brown on all sides. If it is 1-2 lbs, it should take about 30 minutes or so. The potatoes (in the foil packs)should go on at the same time. It is important that you turn your aluminum packages frequently so they don’t burn – but they will still brown if your fire is hot enough.
Test to be sure both the meat and potatoes are cooked to your liking. Pour about another cup of the Raspberry Chipotle over the meat and secure well in an aluminum foil pack – this makes a great sauce for the meat!
Finally, put your vegetables on the grill. I put them right on the grill as they will brown better. Turn often so they do not burn. I like to serve my grilled vegetables a bit “al dente” so they are still crisp.
Cut your meat and serve with some of the sauce from the foil package poured over the meat. This combined with the potatoes and colorful vegetables will not only taste great, but it will look great too! Enjoy this gourmet meal in your New or Used RV! Here is my finished product, what do you think?
