Green Beans with Mushrooms & Shallots + Teriyaki Pork

Pork tenderloin is the cut of pork that I stick with the most since I’ve destroyed every pork chop I’ve ever made. If you use a remote thermometer (the kind where a little wand gets stuck inside the meat and the temperature recording device sits outside your oven- like this one), pork tenderloin comes out perfect every time. This recipe comes from Ellie Krieger, the goddess of creating great, healthy recipes: Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin.

And since my husband & I are mushroom fanatics, this side dish from EK was a good choice for the pork.  Mushrooms + Shallots + Green Beans make a lovely and delicious side dish: Green Beans with Shallots & Mushrooms


Here they are all plated up with a little rice thrown on there too.


This was an excellent, healthy dinner (tender pork & all) that my whole family enjoyed from Ellie Krieger’s Cookbook: The Food You Crave. I’ve mentioned this cookbook before… it’s TOTALLY worth getting. Every recipe I’ve tried has been a keeper. I can’t wait to get her new cookbook too.

    I love that pork tenderloin recipe. The green beans look good, too. I’m going to have to try them.

    These green beans look great. I too made pork this week, nice change from all the chicken and seafood around here. This is a great light, healthy, satisfying meal :) Thx!

    I never make pork. I don’t know why. I think it’s the old wives tale that it is fattening. It isn’t, it’s lean. Great recipe for those of us on your 10/10 plan. And you can’t beat green beans with mushrooms. I put mushrooms in my omelet in the AM. I would put mushrooms in anything!

    I’m with you I stick to pork tenderloin instead of chops – they dry out so fast. Looks great!

    Hey pork and beans! I love it. I’m a big fan of pork and rice too (most Filipinos are!)

    If I had famous friends, Ellie Krieger would be my BFF. I love The Food You Crave. It’s the book to have for people who are afraid of moving to Blandville, Healthytown.
