Found this recipe on the web, and it sounded so crazy, I decided I has to give it a go.

Basically you slather the tenderloin with mayo, then sprinkle on a crushed up packet of Lipton's Onion Soup Mix.

Oddly enough it came out great. Quick and easy.




  • Looks Great. How about some insight on temp,cooking method,done temp, etc.

    I've heard buttermilk is another good one for coating instead of mayo.

    I cooked it at 375 deg F. on a raised grid, direct. I pulled it at 140 deg F internal. The recipe calls for 160 deg, but I like my pork more rare. Took about 20 minutes.

    That looks tasty! On the list to try.
  • Fishless,

    Have you ever tried a marinade called "Mojo Criollo"? I find it made by Goya in the grocery store or markets in areas where a lot of Latin Americans reside. It's got sour naranjo orange juice, a lot of cumin, garlic and more spices.

    I use is on boneless country ribs. I cut them into strips about an inch and a half wide, then put them in a ziplock with the marinade for 24 hours in the fridge. Take 'em out of the fridge for an hour or two before grilling direct at 400°-500° to 145° internal and serve with black beans and rice. I cheat and use Vigo brand that comes in a foil bag. Always a winner.

    I've been making a chicken dish for years that consist of
    9x 11.5 pan of chick parts. Can of cream of mushroom or chicken soup. Blot on the chick parts. Equal amount of sour cream, blotted on. Fill the soup can with water drizzle over the whole pan of parts. SPrinkle of garlic powder, s/p. Top with french fried onions, save some to add after done for the crunch factor.. Bake till up to temp. It really is super good. Serve with mashed taters and put some of the sauce on them. Yummy!!!
    Same concept but with the cream soup factor. Give it a try.

    Does this recipe also work with having it bacon wrapped?  Anything with bacon was good but wanted to know if people tried it

    That looks fantastic. My wife used to make chicken leg quarters in the oven using a similar recipe. Haven't had it in years. May have to do that this week to switch it up a bit. We've been stuck in a rut with our same weekly go-to meals for awhile now. Thx for the inspiration!
