When it’s raining or snowing or cold to the bones outside, my dish will warm up all your bones really good. It is super comfort food and you will be making it even when it’s hot outside. Smile
Approx. Prep and Cook Time: 35 Minutes
Approximate Cost: $9.55 or $2.39 per serving
Difficulty Level: Easy
Allergens, Other: Gluten Free
1 pork tenderloins clean of any fat and 1” cubed ($3.50)
1 ½ to 2 c. chicken of beef stock (I used my homemade) ($1.25)
2 tbsp. Angie’s basting olive oil (.70)
1 ½ tbsp. Angie’s dry seasoning (.20)
1 tbsp. Roasted Garlic and Herbs seasoning (.15)
6 garlic cloves, chopped (.30)
1 small onion, chopped (.40)
1 pk. Sazón Goya (.25)
2 corn ears sliced in 1 ½ “($1.00)
2 yautia (Malanga) fresh or ½ a frozen bag (.80)
4 frozen cubes of sofrito-molido ($1.00)
Couple of chopped scallions to garnish (optional) (.15)
Bring a saucepan with water and a bit of salt to-taste to a boil, add the corn and the yautia and cook until the yautia is a bit tender. Remove from heat.
Clean the tenderloin of any fat and cube it. Season with 1 tbsp. Angie’s basting olive oil, 1 ½ tbsp. Angie’s dry seasoning, and 1 tbsp. Roasted Garlic and Herbs seasoning. Refrigerate.
In a med. size saucepan, over med. heat add 1 tbsp. my basting olive oil and sauté the onion and garlic until light golden.
Add the seasoned tenderloin cubes to the skillet and sauté until light golden.
Drain the corn and yautia, and add them to the tenderloin pan, mix well.
Add the beef or chicken stock, sofrito-molido frozen cubes and Sazón.
Reduce the heat and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes until it thickens a bit. I did not use tomato sauce because I added Sazón for color and the yautia thickens the sauce.
NOTE: You can serve this “Asopao” (or thick soup) with yellow rice, or on top of any pasta. Finally, remember to add a nice slice of avocado on the side.
NOTE: You can find yautia (in English is called Malanga) in the Spanish Market or even at Walmart. It is a root veggie and an amazing alternative to potatoes.
