Fresh Sweet Corn and Pork
from Francis Anthony - The Love Chef
1½ pounds pork tenderloin
2 tablespoons Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup red onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
4 ears husked fresh super sweet corn
½ teaspoon dried thyme
Salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce
2-3 dashes hot sauce
Cut the pork tenderloin crosswise into 4 pieces. Split each piece in half lengthwise. In a large skillet, over medium high heat, heat the Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add pork and cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 10 minutes, turning once. Add the onion, garlic, red pepper, thyme, and cook until pork and onion are browned, about an additional 12 to 15 minutes, stirring often and turning pork half way through cooking.
Cut each corn into 4 pieces and add to skillet, pour barbecue sauce over all and then add hot sauce. Cover and cook over low heat until pork is cooked and corn is hot, about 5 minutes.
