Pork Medallions 5 Spice
1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed of all visible fat
2 teaspoons five-spice powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons better butter or trans-fat free spread
3 large granny smith apples, cored and sliced in 1/2″ wedges
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup water

Cut the tenderloin in half to create two equal pieces. Rub the spice powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt over all sides of each piece.

In a small skillet, melt 2 teaspoons of the butter or spread over medium-high heat. Add the meat and cook, turning as needed, for about 4 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Cover and continue to cook, turning occasionally, for about 12 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the center reaches 155°F and the juices run clear. Remove and let stand for 5 minutes. Cut each piece into 6 medallions.

Meanwhile, in a heavy skillet set over medium-high heat, combine the apples, cranberries, remaining 2 teaspoons butter or spread, water, and the remaining pinch of salt. Cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until the

liquid has almost evaporated and the apples soften. Serve

Five-spice powder is a Chinese seasoning mixture comprised of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns. Look for it in the spice section of the supermarket

Tips for selling your home in Wilmington, NC

Tips for selling your home in Wilmington, NC.

If you haven’t received any offers on your home you’re probably facing the question of what to do.  And if your house stays on the market too long without selling it can begin to appear “stale” and can actually damage your future chances of a sale.

How long is too long?  In a dry market, a sales period of six months to one year isn’t unusual. Look at recent sales reports of similar homes in Wilmington, NC nearby to determine a reasonable selling interval. In a hot seller’s market, a house that hasn’t sold within one month indicates a problem. In either case, there are several steps you can take before putting up the white flag.             

  • Videotape your house, inside and out, and watch the tape as if you were a prospective buyer. Is the lawn weedy or the garden bare? Is your home uncluttered and spotlessly scrubbed? Sparkling-clean houses sell faster than those that look too lived-in or show an abundance of the owner’s personality.   Read More Here
