24. Pork Loin en Croute, Spaetzle, Garlicky Beets, Caramelized Banana Cake

This menu of recipes for two is a play on a classic beef entrée.  Wrapping meat in flaky pastry adds an impressive visual effect, helps to retain moisture in the meat, and is just plain cool.

The pork is loved up with some soft sweet spices, and then glazed in orange marmalade under the pastry.  On the side are traditional butter spaetzle and a nice garlicky side of gorgeous red beets. 

Inspired by the flavors of Germany.
