Chef Mike’s Pork Tenderloin Crepinette
Crepinettes are usually flat, rounded sausage patties wrapped in caul fat that melts away when cooked, leaving a beautifully juicy individual serving. Chef Michael turns the concept inside out with his Electric City Butcher Pork Tenderloin Crepinette (see the recipe in Saute Magazine). Chef wraps a tender Llano Seco pork tenderloin ($18/lb) in ECB Spicy Sicilian sausage, drapes it in caul fat, and then roasts it whole. Once done, it’s cut in individual medallions. Taking ECB’s whole animal to heart, this dish uses multiple parts of the animal encouraging a Nose to Toes use with little to no waste. With roasted vegetables, it’s a perfect winter meal to share, so come by to pick up the ingredients for a delicious meal!
