Pork Tenderloin & Cinnamon Apples

Yesterday was a typical hot, sunny summer day – perfect for solar cooking.  The day’s menu included Apricot-Bourbon Glazed Stuffed Pork Tenderloin, Cinnamon Apples, hot dinner rolls, and a pineapple upside-down cake.  We also added a fresh cold cole slaw to round out the meal.

I started with a small butterflyed pork tenderloin.  Into the center of the tenderloin, I added some seasoned stuffing.  Then topped it off with an apricot-bourbon glaze.   The pork cooked for 3 hours in the SOS, top temperature reached 275.

For the apples, I cut 4 large cooking apples into large chunks, added some sugar, a little bit of cinnamon, and a tablespoon of flour (to help thicken the sauce).   I baked the apples in the Cookit for 3 hours.

The Pineapple upside down cake was made from a box mix that can be found in any grocery store.  I almost always bake some kind of bread, and I usually use frozen rolls from the freezer section of the store.   The cake and rolls baked for about 2 ½ hours in the SOS.

When the pork was done and the oven opened up, the aroma was heavenly.  Later, when the cake was done, I could smell the cake even before the oven lid was off.  We nearly ate it first!

What a great meal!!  All cooked by using free energy from the sun.
