So last night we couldn't decide what we wanted for dinner. I had planned to make Chicken on salad's but that didn't sound good to the hubby so we decided to give Tortilla Pizza's a try. Here in St. Louis thin cracker-like crust is the thing and these pretty much fit the bill. I just used store-bought tortillas, jar pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and various toppings.

So for Christmas, the Hubby got me an Express Pot. I love my crockpots, yes crockpots I have 6. Hoping the express becomes as loved as my crockpots. Going to try making an Apricot pork loin.
Wasn't bad but it also wasn't fall apart tender like if it had been cooked in the crockpot all day. It only took 40 minutes... heat up, brown it, come up to pressure and cook (25mins) then cooldown of 10 minutes. I will try it some more. Found the recipe here, http://www.shecookswithhelp.com/recipe/apricot-pork-loin-instant-pot-recipe/

and Once again it is Peach and Blueberry Recipe that brings me here,
Peach Blueberry Pork tenderloin
1 Pork tenderloin
1 Cup Blueberries
½ cup Juice ( I used apple) (Plus 14cup to make sauce if you want it)
2 Tbs. Balsamic Vinegar
½ Tbs. brown sugar ( If you want it sweeter add more)
1 Tbs. Cinnamon (pumpkin pie spice would be awesome too!)
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Tbs. Corn Starch if making a sauce with drippings.
Slice up peaches into wedges, Make slices along the top of the tenderloin and place a peach slice in each slice in the meat. Place Tenderloin in the Crock pot and then put remaining peach slices around it. Dump in your blueberries.
Mix together juice, balsamic Vinegar, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Pour this mixture over your meat and Peaches.
I cooked my on low for 5 hours. Used a spatula with holes to move meat, peaches, and berries to serving plate. Then used drippings to make a sauce.
To make Sauce:
Poured dripping into sauce pan bring to boil. In a lidded bowl add 1/4 cup apple juice and 2 Tbs. corn starch. Place lid on bowl and shake till no lumps remain. Pour this mixture into boiling dripping sand stir until thickened, but not too thick. I like it a bit thicker than gravy. But remember it will also thicken as it cools.
