FOR THE LEFTOVER DINNER
1Preheat grill to 400 to 500 degrees (high heat). Sprinkle pork with the pepper and 1 tsp salt; wrap 5 bacon slices around each tenderloin, and secure with wooden picks.
2Place green beans, 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 garlic cloves, and remaining 1 tsp salt in the center of a 24 x 18 inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil; toss to coat. Bring up sides of foil over the beans; double fold the top and side edges to seal, making a packet.
3If using a charcoal grill, move coals to one side. If using a gas grill, turn off one side of the grill. Arrange the pork and foil packet over the unlit side, and grill, covered with grill lid, for 25 to 30 minutes.
4Meanwhile, mince remaining 2 garlic cloves; saute in remaining 1 tbsp hot olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden. Add the vinegar; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in preserves. Reserve half of the mixture for basting. Stir the fresh strawberries into the remaining mixture.
5Remove the foil packet from the grill. Transfer thepork to the lit side of the grill. Baste pork with the reserved strawberry mixture. Grill for 5 more minutes over the lit side, turning once. Remove the pork from the grill; reserve 1 tenderloin for the "Leftover Recipe". Slice the remaining tenderloin, and serve with strawberry mixture and green beans.
6For the Leftover Recipe: Cut the reserved pork from the recipe into 18 thin slices.
7Cut the drained peppers into 6 pieces.
8Spread 2 teaspoons of pesto on one side of each slice of artisan bread. Top with 3 pork slices, a red bell pepper piece, a havarti cheese slice, and the other bread slice.
9Cook in a preheated panini press 2 to 3 minutes or until golden on each side. Enjoy
