The Hunt's Reward: A Freezer Full of Potential

With around 60 lbs of hog meat from a successful trip, the challenge was on to find a quick and tasty way to enjoy the spoils of the hunt. In the rush before a shift at the fire department, I zeroed in on hog tenderloins, ready to turn them into a delightful dinner with minimal fuss.

The Quick Fix: Air-Frying Brilliance

In a swift move, I placed both tenderloins in the air fryer pan and set the temperature to 400 degrees. Twelve minutes later, a tantalizing aroma filled the kitchen as the first cycle came to an end. A flip and another 12 minutes at 400 degrees followed, creating a sizzling symphony that hinted at the deliciousness to come.

After the final cycle, I allowed the hog tenderloins to rest for five minutes. The moment of truth arrived as I tested their readiness with a quick temperature check. The result? Juicy, flavorful perfection that showcased the magic of air frying.

As I took the first bite, the combination of tender hog meat, the crunch of the bun, and the tang of mustard created a flavor explosion that exceeded all expectations. What began as a hurried experiment turned into a delicious dinner that I'm excited to share with fellow hunters and food enthusiasts alike.
