Dream Dinners: Gaucho Grilled Pork with Garlic Asparagus Spears

On Friday, I finally had an evening home and some time to make dinner.  I decided to make the Gaucho Grilled Pork with Garlic Asparagus.  I was pretty excited about this one, as one of my friends told me it was her favorite Dream Dinners pork dish and her opinions have been pretty accurate.  My grill pan is not huge, so I decided that I would cook the pork tenderloin in the oven.  I got my oven heated up and prepared my pan.  I brushed the pork tenderloin with olive oil and sprinkled it with the dry rub.  I baked the pork for 30 minutes, basting it with the chili butter every 10 minutes.  We let it rest for about 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.  After the pork had finished and was resting, I turned the oven on to broil and got started on the asparagus.  I broiled the asparagus for about 5 minutes, added garlic and butter, and broiled about another 4-5 minutes.  Everything was ready to go at about the same time.  This was a really yummy meal.  The pork was perfectly cooked to a tender state and the flavor was amazing. I loved the chili butter.  I don’t love asparagus, but the flavor was pretty tasty and I finished my portion.  Mike really liked the asparagus and said that it was cooked well.  I also used some of the leftover pork to make nachos and they were pretty amazing, too.  I can’t wait until the Gaucho Pork is back on the menu-I will definitely be ordering more than one next time!
